Abstract

Group-living animals must constantly integrate and respond to information from other individuals within the group. The degree to which consistent inter-individual behavioural differences are influenced by social cues in such groups is largely unanswered. We used the honey bee waggle dance as an...

Abstract

Laboratory experiments are vital to exploring the causes of pollinator loss, but for these experiments to be informative, they should attempt to replicate the hive environment and conserve social interactions. It is unclear how honeybee density and group size affect survival and behaviour in the...

Abstract

Social interactions are studied in colonies of eusocial Augochlora phoemonoe, reared in artificial nests in the laboratory. Three kinds of behavioral interactions are distinguished between foundresses and daughter bees: antennation-tarsation (the most frequent), passing, and tandem-running...

Abstract

Pheromones play a critical role in shaping societies of social insects, including honey bees, Apis mellifera. While diverse functions have been ascribed to queen- and worker-produced compounds, few studies have explored the identity and function of male-produced (drone) compounds. However, several...

Abstract

Honeybees are living densely packed in colonies which extremely facilitates intracolonial pathogen transmission from one individual to another. In addition to the defence by the innate immune system, various behavioural adaptations allow honeybees to avoid or reduce pathogen transmission, also...

AbstractFull Text

The study was conducted on ten groups of worker bees exposed for 15 minutes at a concentration of 1.2 isoflurane MAC (L1-L5 groups) and 1.5 MAC (L6-L10 groups) in 1 liter/minute oxygen flow. During the induction period and awakening from anesthesia was observed bees behavior, and was noted the...

Abstract

Comparison of lateralization in social and non-social bees tests the hypothesis that population-level, directional asymmetry has evolved as an adjunct to social behaviour. Previous research has supported this hypothesis: directional bias of antennal use in responding to odours and learning to...

Abstract

The presence of honey bees in our landscapes has long invoked images of vitality, diligence, and cooperation. Unfortunately, the current state of bee health paints a rather different picture. The survival of honey bees, as well as the livelihoods of those who benefit from their labor, is under...

Abstract

Everywhere, honeybees and other insect pollinators are dwindling and dying, in a slowly but relentlessly unfolding crisis that has come to be known as "Colony Collapse Disorder." This article draws upon theoretical currents from animal studies, environmental sociology and ecofeminism in order to...
