Behavioural and physiological implications of queen dominance in stingless bees

, : Behavioural and physiological implications of queen dominance in stingless bees. Behavioural and physiological implications of queen dominance in stingless bees: 109 pp.

The dominance of the queen over the reproduction of the workers and virgin queens (gynes) in stingless bee (Meliponinae) colonies was studied and the results are presented in 5 chapters. The first of these describes the occurrence of laying workers in colonies of Tetragonisca angustula having a laying queen. The results indicate that the queen, by her own egg laying, obstructs oviposition by the workers by limiting the availability of oviposition sites.

The species was originally stated to cause flat blister-like galls on the stems of Acacia sp. in South Africa.
