Caste differentiation in social insects. This book is based on the International Study Workshop on Termite Caste Differentiation, which was held at the International Centre of Insect Physiology and Ecology in Nairobi, Kenya, on November Cited by: Caste differentiation and division of labor is also emphasized, as well as the genetics of sociality.

The last two chapters deal with the larvae of the social hymenoptera and the social and evolutionary significance of social insect symbionts.

This volume is a good reference for students and teachers in the study of entomology, zoology. In all Caste differentiation in social insects book social Hymenoptera, as in termites (see earlier chapters), juvenile hormone (JH) is used as a control of caste morphogenesis (Brian, ); not necessarily by its concentration in the haemolymph, more likely by its timing (Nijhout & Wheeler, ).

Its presence restrains the embryonic adult and stabilizes its tissues, in particular those of the flight and genital by: 2. In many insect species, differentiation of insect larvae into various castes is determined by diet, although hormonal and Caste differentiation in social insects book factors can also affect development.

Some insects also produce worker or soldier subcastes, which are morphologically and functionally distinct. The subcastes of Pheidole ants are among the best characterized.

Rather, the caste phenotype of a female honey bee is gradually determined during larval development. Hence, the queen/worker dimorphism is the result of developmental plasticity, the capacity of a single individual genotype to respond to environmental signals and, consequentially, give rise to divergent (alternative) phenotypes through.

In stingless bees of the genus Melipona, worker- and queen-destined larvae are reared in brood cells of the same size and receive the same amount of food (Fig. 1).This is apparently in marked contrast to all other social species of corbiculate bees – including the vast majority of stingless bees – in which nurse workers provide larger amounts of food (containing.

This chapter discusses the role of pheromones in termite caste differentiation.

Genre/Form: Conference papers and proceedings Congresses: Additional Physical Format: Print version: Caste differentiation in social insects. Oxford [Oxfordshire]. The process of caste differentiation is central to understanding insect sociality, because it is task specialization that enables division of labor within eusocial colonies.

Selection presumably favors colonies that can adjust their division of labor in response to changing environmental demands, and for many taxa genetic and epigenetic factors are an important.

Nature versus nurture in social insect caste differentiation. ALAIN STRAMBI, in Caste Differentiation in Social Insects, INTRODUCTION. Of all social insects, probably the least well known are social wasps.

This is especially true of the mechanisms of caste determination and the regulation of reproductory functions in the wasp colony. This lack of knowledge is undoubtedly due, for the most part, to difficulties involved in. Factors affecting the caste developmental fates. Caste differentiation in social insects is a representative case of polyphenism, in which multiple discrete phenotypes are seen in a single species (Nijhout,).Castes of termites are primarily divided into two types of individuals: fertile (reproductives) and sterile individuals (neuters) (Thorne, ; Roisin, ).

Insectes Sociaux (IS) is the journal of the International Union for the Study of Social Insects (IUSSI). It covers the various aspects of the biology and evolution of social insects and other presocial arthropods; these include ecology, ethology, morphology, population genetics, reproduction, communication, sociobiology, caste differentiation and social parasitism.

The following chapters discuss the aspects of social insects in terms of antiquity and territoriality. Caste differentiation and division of labor is also emphasized, as well as the genetics of sociality. The last two chapters deal with the larvae of the social hymenoptera and the social and evolutionary significance of social insect Edition: 1.

Recent evidence for genetic effects on royal and worker caste differentiation from diverse social insect taxa has put an end to the view that these phenotypes stem solely from a developmental switch controlled by environmental factors.

Instead, the relative influences of genotypic and environmental effects on caste vary among species, ranging from largely Cited by: However, the processes underlying the adaptive and flexible control of caste differentiation in social insect colonies are not well understood.

Experimental evidence for adaptive shifts in caste ratio is limited, 17 – 19 probably because manipulation of environmental factors that may influence caste ratio is usually difficult in complex and.

The authors of the various chapters were chosen from friends. The most fundamental specialization of the eusocial insects is the division of colony members into two castes, workers (functionally sterile individuals) and reproductives.

1 Understanding the proximal mechanisms leading to differentiation among individuals is therefore central to an understanding the evolution of eusociality itself.

The higher social insects-the ants, termites, and eusocial bees and wasps-are all characterized by the divi-sion of colony members into reproductive queens and nonreproducing workers.

In species with larger colonies, workers are further differentiated into subcastes, which. AbstractEusocial insects exhibit the most striking example of phenotypic plasticity. There has been a long controversy over the factors determining caste development of individuals in social insects.

Here we demonstrate that parental phenotypes influence the social status of offspring not through genetic inheritance but through genomic imprinting in by: The four a priori categories were chosen based on the behavioural experiments (metabolism, stress [26,27]) or previous knowledge about social insect caste differentiation (division of.

In many social insects including bees, ants, wasps, and termites, queens and workers show up to a fold difference in lifespan, with reproductive queens having longer longevity than non-reproductive workers.

Caste differentiation in social insect species is known to be dependent on the larval nutritional by: 6. Strict regulation of caste differentiation, at the molecular level, is thought to be important to maintain social structure in insect societies.

Previously, a number of extrinsic and intrinsic factors have been shown to influence caste composition in termite by:   Caste differentiation. Of the larvae that were exposed to CPY, only survived, but not all as queens as expected.

That is, we found that different CPY doses in the food of P. droryana larvae had a significant effect on caste differentiation causing the deviation from queens to workers (generalised linear mixed model [GLMM] binomial, n =groups = 48 Cited by: Social Insects V1: Volume 1 - Ebook written by Henry Hermani.
