This CD-ROM provides a database of information published on the superfamily Chalcidoidea (Hymenoptera) and includes:

  • 36,000 references
  • 95,000 host records
  • 115,000 distributional records
  • 300 colour images of adults and immature stages

The TAXA system, developed by Dr Dicky Yu, provides the software engine that manages the taxonomic and biological information. 

All biological, distributional and taxonomic information is linked to scientific names, arranged in a hierarchical taxonomic tree, which provides the framework for listing of all or selected references or scientific names at any taxonomic level. 

Indexes of taxonomic names, common names, authors, images and references facilitate the search for information.

This CD-ROM is intended to improve availability of accurate information about Chalcidoidea, facilitating distribution of scientific knowledge worldwide.

Interactive Catalogue of World Chalcidoidea is available to order from our co-publisher Taxapad. For details of how to contact them, please visit Publishing partners.
