Abstract

Laboratory rearing systems are useful models for studying Rhinotermitid behavior. Information on the biology of fungus-growing termites, however, is limited because of the difficulty of rearing colonies in the laboratory settings. The physical structure of termite nests makes it impossible to...

Abstract

Postpharyngeal gland content was used to test the hypothesis that the hydrocarbon constituents, but not the other lipid classes, are responsible for modifying the aggressive behaviour of ants and so form a part of the nestmate recognition system. Two queenright colonies of Cataglyphis niger were...

Abstract

An array of eight microphones, all at a distance of 15 cm, was used to make simultaneous recordings of the sounds emitted by courting male Omocestus viridulus. In this species, the movement pattern for sound production differs in the two hindlegs, and in most cases the leg facing the female moves...

Abstract

Male behaviour and regulation of worker mating were observed in Indonesian Pachycondyla sp. The colonies had some mated workers but only one gamergate (mated and egg-laying workers). Males frequently tried to mate with workers in their natal nests irrespective of worker age and dominance rank,...

Abstract

Inter-individual behavioural actions (grooming, trophallaxes, feeding with solid food and carrying with mouth-parts) of Reticulitermes speratus (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae) were visually scrutinized to give the frequency of each action among castes and stages. Although most of the castes/stages...
