This book is highly interesting, containing as it does masses of information about the genesis and further development of colonies among various species of hymenopterans. For me, the name Hölldobler is a guarantee of excellent writing, even though I would tend to warn potential readers that this book definitely is one for informed readers who have more than a passing interest in the subject.
The graphs, statistics, sketches and photos complement the text to perfection, making it easier to comprehend and absorb the details. Anyone who has wondered about the seemingly disorganized rushing about of ants when their nest is disturbed, and wants to know more about the structure of their "society," should start out with Hölldobler's first book, The Ants as it offers details that are explored in greater detail in The Superorganism.
