Social Insects: Structure, Function, and Behavior $245.00
Editors: Emily M. Stewart
Book Description:
Social insects are among the most diverse and ecologically important organisms on Earth. This book presents current research in the study of social insects, including food storage behavior in social Hymenoptera; the global empire of an invasive ant; asymmetric trophallaxis between workers of the stingless bee; termite breeding strategies; as well asbiogenic amines and division of reproduction in social insects.(Imprint: Nova)
