..., but also establish that rescue, heretofore overlooked in analyses of division of labor, is a true specialization, an ant version of first responders. Moreover, this specialization emerges as early as 5 days of age, and the frequency of rescuers remains constant across ants' age ranges. The extremely broad...

...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...

...Sarah P. Lawson; Salena L. Helmreich; Sandra M. Rehan ABSTRACT By manipulating resources or dispersal opportunities, mothers can force offspring to remain at the nest to help raise siblings, creating a division of labor. In the subsocial bee Ceratina calcarata , mothers manipulate the quantity...

... bee queen–worker differentiation and worker division of labor, both of which are related to the responses to nutritional stress. Our study shows a link between larval stress and adaptive adult morphology, physiology and behavior. Similar responses to developmental food deprivation have been found...

... ). Simultaneously, reproductive division of labor is maintained by a specific subset of cuticular chemicals expressed by queens and reproductive workers that signal their fertility ( Liebig, 2010 ). Additionally, some species display sex-specific chemical profiles that distinguish males from female castes...
