This volume deals with the taxonomy and biology of the Dryinidae and Embolemidae (Hymenoptera: Chrysidoidea) of Fennoscandia and Denmark. These are parasitoids of leafhoppers and planthoppers (Homoptera Auchenorrhyncha).
The first part of the book examines general aspects of morphology, biology, natural enemies, economic importance, fossils, evolution and affinities. The second part deals with the classification of the species living in Fennoscandia and Denmark, with keys, descriptions, geographic distribution, hosts and bionomics.
The knowledge of the taxonomy and biology of the Dryinidae is important for biological control projects. The book is finely illustrated with 60 original drawings and 32 watercolours.

Review:

'...this mostly excellent and authoritative book should surely provide a good basis for hauling this interesting and bizarre group of parasitoids back into strong focus for British hymenopterists.'
Mark R. Shaw, British Journal of Entomology and Natural History, 1996.
'Cet ouvrage est à recommander notamment à tous ceux qui s'intéressent à la lutte biologique contre les ravageurs des cultures.'
