Abstract

White-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus (Zimmermann, 1780)) are now common in many urban environments throughout their geographic range. Yet, how male and female deer in the urban environment associate, behave socially, and the evolutionary implications of that behavior remains unstudied. We...

Abstract

This study was undertaken to estimate the survival, home-range size and dispersal distances of male white-tailed deer for one year. Dispersal distances and home-range sizes obtained from this study and those from literature were used in a simulation model to assess the impact of dispersal and...

Abstract

In social insects, reproduction is often monopolized by queens even though in many species are workers capable of laying male eggs. Because it is difficult to see how one or a few queens can suppress the much more numerous workers, collective worker control, or policing, offers an attractive...

Abstract

A comparison of Texas birders' (n = 718) and waterfowl hunters' (n = 518) commitment to their recreational pursuits, attitudes concerning selected wildlife management practices, and opinions on alternative methods to increase monetary support for nongame programmes is presented. Similarities...

Abstract

A discussion of the main management factors affecting bull fertility in Texas, USA, and the role of the veterinary surgeon. The areas covered are nutrition, infectious disease control, parasite control, breeding soundness evaluation, sex ratio and the use of multiple sire batteries, bull rotation...

Abstract

The hygienic behaviour of honey bees (Apis mellifera) in the removal of the parasitic mite (Varroa jacobsoni) from the hive was studied during 1994-97 in Minnesota, USA. Colonies of hygienic and non-hygienic honey bees were bred from stock derived from Italian A. mellifera ligustica, and their...

Abstract

Genetic relatedness is expected to play a crucial role in the evolution of altruistic behaviours such as worker behaviour in the social insects. If individuals sacrifice their own reproduction, then the genes for this sacrifice will be lost unless these individuals aid the reproduction of others...

Abstract

Variation in queen phenotype and reproductive role in S. invicta has been previously shown to have a simple genetic basis in a single introduced population in the USA. The evidence consists of an association between this variation and queen genotype at Pgm-3, a phosphoglucomutase-encoding gene. The ...

Abstract

A population of Polistes annularis was studied on a cliff in Texas during 1976-80. Nests were censused every 3 days before worker emergence and every 4-10 days afterwards. Numbers of foundresses varied from 1 to 28, with less than 5% of females nesting alone in any year. The number of foundresses...

Abstract

In primitively eusocial wasps, dominance hierarchies predict which female will become queen when the original queen is removed. At each of 3 latitudes (in Texas and Mexico) spanning a range from temperate sites to tropical ones, an older, dominant worker of P. instabilis became the replacement...
