By intelligent manipulation of habitat complexity, it could be possible to enhance not only the number of species that can live in oil palm plantations but also their contribution to the healthy functioning of this exceptionally important and widespread landscape.
A thousand and one wasps: a 28S rDNA and morphological phylogeny of the Ichneumonidae (Insecta: Hymenoptera) with an investigation into alignment parameter space and elision
The internal phylogeny of the Ichneumonidae is investigated using parsimony analysis of a large data set including 1001 partial 28S ribosomal DNA sequences and a morphological data set of 162 characters scored variously at subfamily, tribe, genus group and genus levels and including only informative characters.
Ichneumonid Wasps (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae): Their Classification and Biology (Handbook for the Identification of British Insects Vol.7, Part 12), by Gavin Broad, Mark Shaw & Michael Fitton
This book provides an extensively illustrated key for the identification of the 35 subfamilies of Ichneumonidae known to occur in Britain and Ireland (plus Brachycyrtinae, not yet found here).
Direct optimization and multiple alignment of 28S D2–D3 rDNA sequences: problems with indels on the way to a molecular phylogeny of the cryptine ichneumon waSPS (Insecta: Hymenoptera)
A molecular phylogeny of the Cryptinae based on the D2–D3 region of the 28S rDNA gene, including 176 cryptines representing 139 genera and an additional 77 outgroup genera, is presented and shows that multiple alignment generally resulted in taxa with large insertions or deletions being placed in more plausible positions.
Endoparasitism in cereal aphids: molecular analysis of a whole parasitoid community
A DNA‐based approach to effectively track trophic interactions within an aphid–parasitoid food web, targeting, for the first time, the whole community of parasitoids and hyperparasITods associated with a single host is presented.
The suprageneric groups ofthe Pimplinae (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae): a cladistic re-evaluationand evolutionary biological study
The phylogenetic relationships of the suprageneric group of the ichneumonid subfamily Pimplinae (Hymenoptera) are re-assessed using 166 morphological and biological characters for 162 species, representing all of the available described genera and subgenera, and results suggest that using abstracted taxa may force a ‘falsemonophyly’ on the preselected groups.
Annotated and illustrated world checklist of Microgastrinae parasitoid wasps (Hymenoptera, Braconidae)
Abstract A checklist of world species of Microgastrinae parasitoid wasps (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) is provided. A total of 81 genera and 2,999 extant species are recognized as valid, including 36…
The parasitic wasp genera Skiapus, Hellwigia, Nonnus, Chriodes, and Klutiana (Hymenoptera, Ichneumonidae): Recognition of the Nesomesochorinae stat. rev. and Nonninae stat. nov. and transfer of…
Molecular synapomorphies within the D2–3 expansion region of the 28S rDNA gene show the utility of this gene region in determining subfamily‐level placement within the higher Ophioniformes.
Phylogenomics of Ichneumonoidea (Hymenoptera) and implications for evolution of mode of parasitism and viral endogenization.

It is shown with primary data that the species richness of Ichneumonidae is markedly underestimated in tropical areas and that latitudinal diversity patterns in the family remain uncharacterized, and the true extent of tropical orthocentrine diversity is revealed.
