If it's 1800 hrs. this pathologist has turned into an internet student of entomology. I reared a Perilampid out of an Oak gall, which I had assumed to have been a Cynipid gall. One thing leads to another (on the internet) and I began to read about Cynipid sex, and found it to be as complex as my previous study of aphid life cycles. I suspect some authors have different names for the same stage, and others use the same name for different phases. My most recent reading talked about 2 types of males or females and yet the diagrammes showed them behaving the same. So here is my question.
Would the professionals like to recommend a text book to an amateur who wants to understand the strategies, sex determination and insect life cycles, across all orders &c, (and yet not get too bogged down in the details of the DNA of some fruit fly)?
