2014) carried out the phylogeny of the paper wasp
genus Polistes is investigated using six genes (COI, 12S, 16S, 28S, H3, and EF1-a).
Chemical attractants for yellow jackets and paper Wasp
For that matter, this may be the only time you'll ever read the phrase "perky as a paper wasp
In this project I will adopt a novel approach to understand cooperative behaviour in two social insects that have evolved different levels of sociality: the primitively eusocial paper wasp
Polistes dominula and the highly eusocial fire ant Solenopsis invicta.
The common yellow wasp, also known as the Arabian paper wasp
, is found in many parks and gardens and can be fatal if the person stung is allergic to the insect's venom.
The scientists combined data from the transcriptome -- showing which genes are active and being transcribed from DNA into RNA -- and genomic (DNA) data from a number of species of ants, bees and wasps, including bradynobaenid wasps, a cuckoo wasp, a spider wasp, a scoliid wasp, a mud dauber wasp, a tiphiid wasp, a paper wasp
and a pollen wasp; a velvet ant (wasp); a dracula ant; and a sweat bee, Lasioglossum albipes.
Many of these new poems begin from a particular natural "artifact"--a paper wasp

But it developed a novel slant when two evolutionary biologists from the University of Michigan argued that a type of paper wasp
, like people, shows signs of using specialized approaches to recognize faces of its own kind.
