Abstract

Beginning in 1997 Michigan State University Mara Hyena Project investigators observed waxing and waning progression of oral and genital masses during long-term behavioral observations of a population of wild spotted hyenas (Crocuta crocuta) from the Masai Mara Game Reserve, Kenya. From 1999-2000,...

Abstract

Field observations were made in Michigan, USA, on 37 preworker, multiple-foundress colonies of P. fuscatus. In total, 401.9 h of behavioural observations of cofoundresses were conducted at 3 different periods before the emergence of workers. Cofoundresses displayed a marked, significant increase in ...

Abstract

Evidence is presented implicating several cuticular hydrocarbons as kin recognition pheromones in Polistes fuscatus.

Abstract

Non-nestmate, aunt-niece recognition by Polistes fuscatus in the field in Michigan, USA, was examined by staging encounters that approximated to the context for natural recognition behaviour. It was found that females are highly variable in their treatment of non-nestmate kin. On average, however,...

Abstract

Ecological determinants of sociality in burying beetles (Nicrophorus spp.), potential conflicts of interest among reproductive females, and the effects of nesting failure and costs of fighting on cooperation were investigated. Burying beetles are known to form monogamous pairs when exploiting small ...

Abstract

How resident females of P. fuscatus treated female nestmates, non-nestmate first cousins and unrelated non-nestmates was observed in Michigan. Behavioural observations were made 1, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8 and 11 weeks after the emergence of a colony's first workers. Resident females were highly tolerant of...

Abstract

Worker emergence is important in the development of a social insect colony because after workers emerge subordinate foundresses (SFs) are less critical to the survival of the colony, and may be simply a threat to the egg laying monopoly of the queen. A widely-held view is that after worker...

Abstract

Recognition of non-nestmate kin was studied in Polistes fuscatus in the laboratory and field in Michigan in 1986 and 1987. A brief account is given of a laboratory investigation of non-nestmate aunt-niece recognition which has been published elsewhere. The results of this study are reanalyzed with...

Abstract

The queen's role in regulation of worker foraging in small field colonies of the primitively eusocial wasp Polistes fuscatus was examined in Iowa and Michigan. Queen removal resulted in a significant reduction in worker departure rate. The placement of a cooled, inactive queen into her queenless...
