The insect order Hymenoptera comprises the bees, wasps, ants and sawflies. In many terrestrial biodiversity studies this group has emerged as one of the more abundant and speciose. Amid the diverse life forms are eusocial species, predators, parasites and many forms of herbivory, such as external feeders, pollen gatherers and gall formers. Between and within these varied life forms are a host of behavioural patterns.
