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

This special issue presents ten articles highlighting topics on Genomics, Physiology and Behaviour of Social Insects. Topics include: old threads make new tapestry-rewiring of signalling pathways underlies caste phenotypic plasticity in the honey bee, Apis mellifera L.; the physiological and...

Abstract

Caste development in social Hymenoptera represents a prime example of phenotypic plasticity and variation in life histories and is best understood in honey bees. We review the larval feeding regimes and major signalling pathways involved in the divergent developmental trajectories. The role of...

Abstract

Most societies are vulnerable to rogue individuals that pursue their own interests at the expense of the collective entity. Societies often protect themselves from selfish behaviour by 'policing', thereby enforcing the interests of the collective over those of individuals. In insect societies, for...

Abstract

Old World Oraseminae were revised recently and a phylogeny proposed; however, nothing was known at that time about the biology or immature stages for genera other than Orasema. The immature stages, habits, and host associations of Timioderus and Orasemorpha are herein described, and a new species...

Abstract

An instance of obligatory social parasitism by Polyrhachis lama, on colonies of Diacamma sp., from Java is described. Reproductive females of both species coexist in nests, in which one gamergate queen of the Diacamma sp. host is always found. Dealate females (gynomorphs) of the parasite species...

Abstract

Ant [Formicidae] foundress associations are an example of cooperation among non-kin. Across a dozen genera, queens able to found a colony alone often join unrelated queens, thereby enhancing worker production and colony survivorship. The benefits of joining other queens vary with group size and...

Abstract

The evolution of co-operation in insect societies is discussed with particular reference to kin selection, which also predicts potential kin conflicts (over, for example, caste determination, male parentage, colony sex ratio). It is concluded that understanding how these conflicts are resolved is a ...

Abstract

Morphologically specialized queens are absent in Pachycondyla berthoudi (subfamily Ponerinae). Instead, several of the workers mate and reproduce (gamergates). Gamergate proportion in nests commonly varies between nests and different times of the year and individual fecundity of gamergates varies...
