TitleEffects of queen pheromones on gene expression in ants and bees
Study TypeOther
Abstract Social insect queens produce 'queen pheromones': chemical signals that have manifold phenotypic effects on other colony members. Queen pheromones are chemically similar across many species of ants, wasps and bees, which is remarkable because these taxa diverged >150MYA, and evolved queens and worker .. [more]
