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...

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

Biogenic amines regulate the proximate mechanisms underlying most behavior, including those that contribute to the overall success of complex societies. For honey bees, one crucial set of behaviors contributing to the welfare of a colony is involved with nest thermoregulation. Worker honeybees cool ...

Abstract

Honeybees (Apis mellifera) are insects living in colonies with a complex social organization. Their nest contains food stores in the form of honey and pollen, as well as the brood, the queen and the bees themselves. These resources have to be defended against a wide range of predators and...

Abstract

Social immunity is the cooperation of individual group members towards the control of disease transmission arising from social living. It has been identified as an important mechanism of natural disease control in honey bees, Apis mellifera Linnaeus, which can exhibit hygienic behaviours such as...

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

One of the most important and evolutionarily conserved roles of sleep is the processing and consolidation of information acquired during wakefulness. In both insects and mammals, environmental and social stimuli can modify sleep physiology and behavior, yet relatively little is known about the...

Abstract

Care of offspring is a form of affiliative behavior that is fundamental to studies of animal social behavior. Insects do not figure prominently in this topic because Drosophila melanogaster and other traditional models show little if any paternal or maternal care. However, the eusocial honey bee...

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...
