.... JH has an important role in adult male sexual maturation and behaviour of non-social insects: for example, in accessory gland protein synthesis and courtship behaviour in Drosophila ( Wilson et al., 2003 ; Wijesekera et al., 2016 ). The role of JH in regulating reproductive physiology and...

...Margarita Orlova; Jesse Starkey; Etya Amsalem ABSTRACT The mechanisms that maintain reproductive division of labor in social insects are still incompletely understood. Most studies focus on the relationship between adults, overlooking another important stakeholder – the juveniles. Recent studies...

... life impaired honey bee sociability but there was no evidence for a critical period for the development of the trait, as isolated bees exposed to their hive for 24 h when as old as 6 days still recovered high levels of sociability. Our data show that, even for advanced social insects, sociability is a...
