Abstract

Intraspecific cleptoparasitism represents a facultative strategy advantageous for reducing time and energy costs. However, only a few studies about nesting dynamics have described intraspecific cleptoparasitic behaviour in obligate solitary bees. We focused on nesting dynamics with the...

Abstract

L. fratellum, a halictine bee species of the so-called 'carinate'-Evylaeus group, is mainly distributed in boreo-montane regions of the western Palearctic. In NW Germany it often inhabits disturbed high moors with great populations. In this marginal environment L. fratellum and other (halictine)...

Abstract

In the facultatively social species X. pubescens net reproductive success in general is higher in solitary nests than in social nests. Under unfavourable conditions, however, during which competition for pollen or nesting substrate is severe, net reproductive success is higher for socially nesting...

Abstract

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

Studies of 96 X. pubescens nests made in balsawood boards were carried out in 1988-90 in the Arava valley, Israel. Both solitary and primitively social nests could be found throughout most of the breeding season. In social nests there was reproductive division of labour between a dominant forager...

Abstract

The regulation of social behaviour in the social species of Halictinae studied is described for various colony conditions. The results of the study are used for a discussion of the evolution from solitary to social behaviour in the Halictinae. It is pointed out that sociality is more marked in...

Abstract

Evylaeus species, Halictus scabiosae and Lasioglossum leucozonium were studied in the field and in large laboratory cages. Degree of sociality varies widely: some of the species are solitary, some eusocial and only one (E. marginatus) is social. The biology and life cycle of each species are...

Abstract

Solitary and social nests of the facultatively social carpenter bee Xylocopa pubescens were found simultaneously during the major part of the breeding season. Social nests contained a reproductively dominant forager and either her adult offspring or a formerly reproductive, guarding female. The...

Abstract

The eusocial halictine bee E. malachurus is common over most of southern and central Europe. Overwintered gynes establish haplometrotic nests in spring. A single brood of workers is produced in the northern region, 2 broods are common in central Europe and southern Spain, and up to 3 broods occur...
