Abstract

This bibliography was compiled from over 3,550 references covering the period 1787 to early 2010. References were obtained through iterative searches into older sources and continued until a cul-de-sac was reached. Particular effort was expended in obtaining translations of works in Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Korean, Vietnamese and Russian. Most of the publications cited here have not been captured by any of the enormous websites or search engines. This bibliography is the most complete of its kind available. Bibliographic entries are presented with significant keywords relating to the specific biological trait, for example, swarming, chromosomes, wax and so on as well by scientific names and countries of origin.
