'Division of labour' in honeybees; a revision

Proceedings of the Section Experimental and Applied Entomology of the Netherlands Entomological Society 4: 91-96

'Division of labour' in honeybees; a revision

Recent studies on division of labour in honey bee (Apis mellifera) colonies are reviewed, with 30 references. The influences of genotypic differences, the role of juvenile hormone and individual differentiation are discussed, and it is concluded that it is not useful to regard 'age dependence' as the most important factor in a worker's behaviour.
