Social Parasites in Polistine Wasps are Monophyletic: Implications for Sympatric Speciation. Physiological and Genomic Mechanisms of Social Organization in Wasps (Family: Vespidae) A survey of DNA methylation across social insect species, life stages, and castes reveals abundant and caste-associated methylation in a primitively social wasp; Experimental assessment of winter conditions on turtle nesting behaviour.
Ropalidia marginata is a primitively eusocial, polistine wasp widely distributed in peninsular India. In spite of its primitively eusocial status, queens of R. marginata are surprisingly docile and behaviourally non-dominant (except during the first week or so of their careers as queens). Yet they successfully maintain reproductive monopoly throughout their careers, probably through the use of Cited by: Interactions among female paper wasps of newly founded colonies suggest that dominance relations assign social (reproductive) roles to siblings in a way advantageous to both dominants and subordinates. In various social animals dominance relations may have been an important prerequisite for the evolution of a division of labor between reproductive and nonreproductive (or less Cited by:

Nine of the 13 replacement queens were the oldest individuals on the nest, forming a system of queen replacement that may be described as a by: Dynamics of chemical mimicry in the social parasite wasp Polistes semenowi (Hymenoptera: Vespidae) - Volume Issue 5 - M.

" The Social Biology of Wasps provides a thorough and up-to-date account. It is fertile ground for graduate students seeking thesis topics and a great resource for anyone attuned to the tension between conflict and cooperation that makes social animals so interesting."/5(3).
PAPER WASPS of the genus Polistes (Vcspidae, Polistinae) are social insects. They live in colonies having one egg-laying female (queen) and a number of workers which care. Additional Physical Format: Online version: West-Eberhard, Mary Jane.
Social biology of polistine wasps. Ann Arbor, Museum of Zoology, University of Michigan, The title of this volume makes no secret of the fact that the entire book is about a single aspect of a single group of organisms: the social biology of wasps (Vespidae and Sphecidae). Specialists will be delighted, and nonspecialists may be incredulous, that such a fat book.

The first part of the book opens with a review of the classification of the family Vespidae along with a revision of the subfamily Polistinae.

Everyday low prices and free delivery on eligible orders/5(3). Social wasps in the subfamily Polistinae (Hymenoptera: Vespidae) have been important in studies of the evolution of sociality, kin selection, and within colony conflicts of interest.
These studies have generally been conducted within species, because a resolved phylogeny among species is by: In the Evolution of Social Wasps, Jim Hunt begins with wasps but ultimately casts his net much more broadly to social organisms (or at least social insects) in general.
Hunt begins the book with chapters on the different groups of wasps and their life by: The Social Wasps (Vespidae) All the social wasps are gathered within the family Vespidae, though not all the genera or species within the Vespidae are social.
The social members of the Vespidaeare generally divided into two groups, the Vespine wasps such as Yellow Jackets and Hornets and the Polistine or paper wasps, not that the Vespines do not use paper to build their nest because they do.
Previous investigators have questioned the temporal occurrence, biochemistry, and nutritional use of honey sometimes present in nests of some social polistine wasps.
1. The social biology of the polistine wasp Mischocyttarus mexicanus was studied in southern Florida at the Archbold Biological Station (January–May =‘winter-spring’; November–December and January =‘fall’).
Nests were initiated by from one to twenty females (foundresses). The mean foundress-group size varied with season; most nests were founded by one Cited by: Get this from a library. Social biology of the polistine wasp Mischocyttarus labiatus: survival in a Colombian rain forest. [Marcia Litte]. Pictorial Checklist of the Social Wasps (Vespinae and Polistinae) of Michigan Mark O'Brien University of Michigan Museum of Zoology, Ann Arbor, MI This list is based upon my research and the collections of the University of Michigan Museum of Zoology and.
Mapping the distribution of vibrational signaling onto a phylogeny of the social wasps suggests that this trait characterized the common ancestor of the subfamilies vespinae + Polistinae, diversified in the independent-founding species, then was superseded by caste-determining mechanisms in the swarm-founding and vespine species that function more effectively in larger colonies.
In this edited collection, 17 internationally known authorities bring together the results of recent research on the natural history, ecology, behavior, morphology, and genetics of wasps as they pertain to the evolution of social behavior.
The first part of the book opens with a review of the classification of the family Vespidae along with a revision of the subfamily Polistinae. The Polistinae are eusocial wasps closely related to the more familiar yellow jackets, but placed in their own subfamily, containing four tribes; with some species total, it is the second-most diverse subfamily within the Vespidae, and while most species are tropical or subtropical, they include some of the most frequently encountered large wasps in temperate : Insecta.
The morphology of sternal glands and associated cuticular specializations are described for female polistine social wasps. Their distribution among 25 of the 28 genera of the subfamily is examined in light of what is known of the functions of these glands.
Species in which queens found colonies independently of workers (four genera plus part of Ropalidia) have clusters of ducted gland Cited by: Social Parasites in Polistine Wasps are Monophyletic: Implications for Sympatric Speciation Author(s): Madhusudan Choudhary, Joan E.
Strassmann, David C. Queller, Stefano Turillazzi and Rita Cervo.The social wasps of the genus Polistes are an important model system for understanding the evolution of cooperation. Their relatively simple societies lack the distinct morphological castes which characterize many of the social insects, and newly emerged females possess a .
