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

Honeybees are living densely packed in colonies which extremely facilitates intracolonial pathogen transmission from one individual to another. In addition to the defence by the innate immune system, various behavioural adaptations allow honeybees to avoid or reduce pathogen transmission, also...

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

Everywhere, honeybees and other insect pollinators are dwindling and dying, in a slowly but relentlessly unfolding crisis that has come to be known as "Colony Collapse Disorder." This article draws upon theoretical currents from animal studies, environmental sociology and ecofeminism in order to...

Abstract

Many elements of animal behaviour are organised by an innate reward-seeking drive stemming from neurobiological reward systems. The behavioural concept of reward and its neurobiological substrates was initially developed in mammalian systems, and there it has become clear that several novel social...

Abstract

The presence of honey bees in our landscapes has long invoked images of vitality, diligence, and cooperation. Unfortunately, the current state of bee health paints a rather different picture. The survival of honey bees, as well as the livelihoods of those who benefit from their labor, is under...

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

Division of labour is one of the most basic and widely studied aspects of colony behaviour in social insects. Studies of division of labour are concerned with the integration of individual worker behaviour into colony level task organization and with the question of how regulation of division of...

Abstract

Empirical data concerning the occurrence of task partitioning in insect societies is reviewed with the general aim of drawing broad conclusions about its prevalence and diversity. The potential costs and benefits of task partitioning are also considered. The data show that task partitioning occurs...

Abstract

This is a critique of a model of temporal polyethism (TP) put forward by Tofts [Bulletin of Mathematical Biology (1993) 55: 891-918] and Tofts & Franks [Trends in Ecology & Evolution (1992) 10: 346-349] for ants and bees. This 'foraging-for-work' model provides a simple explanation of TP...
