Cannibalism of brood in honey bee (Apis mellifera L.) colonies


Cannibalism of brood in honey bee Apis mellifera L colonies: 67 pp.
Cannibalism of brood in honey bee (Apis mellifera L.) colonies
The movement of radiolabelled phenylalanine from larvae cannibalized by workers followed a pattern consistent with optimal recovery of those nutrients which would be functional in subsequent brood rearing. This included localization of the radiolabel in the hypopharyngeal glands of cannibal workers and in royal jelly secreted by them.
