E. bicolor is a univoltine allodapine bee common in montane forests of southern Australia, where it exhibits a semisocial/quasisocial colony organization. Within-nest behaviour in post-emergence autumn nests of E. bicolor was recorded with the aim of studying behavioural specialization in...

Abstract

C. japonica is a univoltine and basically solitary bee, but sometimes produces semisocial or delayed eusocial colonies. This study aimed to induce non-delayed eusociality in this bee, which is adopted by most temperate social insects but is incompatible with a univoltine life cycle. A second brood...
