This book extensively studies the internal and external morphology of the western yellowjacket Vespula pensylvanica as well as provides a chapter on Vespine systematics and also provides subsequent chapters which extensivly review the biology and behavior of the Vespinae species from the Western United States. This book is an excellent read and threrefore highly reccomended.
