Systematic Melittology: a virtual issue on bee systematics, October 2010

Edited by Peter S. Cranston, Lars Vilhelmsen, Michael Engel

The editors of Systematic Entomology are proud to present a new virtual issue dealing with bee systematics in the broadest sense. Comprising some twenty papers including an introductory piece by Michael Engel, it covers a substantial part of the diversity of bees. You will find both taxonomic and phylogenetic studies at different systematic levels, conducted with a range of different character systems, both morphological and molecular. Spanning more than a quarter of a century, these papers also form a potted history of recent bee systematics, illustrating the increasing importance of molecular techniques in combination with traditional data sources as well as the value of alternative character systems. We hope the issue will make for enjoyable reading and serve as an inspiration for submissions of similar quality to Systematic Entomology.
