Social behaviour in the form of parental care is widespread among insects but the evolutionary histories of these traits are poorly known due to the lack of detailed life history data and reliable phylogenies.

The Membracinae exhibit the entire range of social behaviour found in the treehoppers, ranging from asocial solitary… CONTINUE READING
