...Robert Buchwald; Michael D. Breed; Alan R. Greenberg SUMMARY Standard melting point analyses only partially describe the thermal properties of eusocial beeswaxes. Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC)revealed that thermal phase changes in wax are initiated at substantially lower temperatures than...

... helium for nitrogen. The model did predict, however, that a set of subchoral layers (a crystalline chorionic layer, a wax layer and the vitelline membrane) could account for most or all of the total resistance to oxygen flux. Support for this prediction was obtained from two sequential experiments. First...
