Nutritional status influences socially regulated foraging ontogeny in honey bees

The Journal of Experimental Biology

Abstract

In many social insects, including honey bees, worker energy reserve levels are correlated with task performance in the colony. Honey bee nest workers have abundant stored lipid and protein while foragers are depleted of these reserves; this depletion precedes the shift from nest work to...read more
