The filling of the spermatheca of the honeybee queen: active migration or passive transport of the spermatozoa?



The filling of the spermatheca of the honeybee queen: active migration or passive transport of the spermatozoa?



Zeitschrift fur Vergleichende Physiologie 72: 411-422



After the spermathecal glands were removed from an intact unmated queen few spermatozoa reached the spermatheca after natural mating or instrumental insemination. The same was true after paralysing the skeletal muscles of the queen's abdomen. When a queen was inseminated with damaged spermatozoa, the spermatheca remained almost empty.
