Guidelines for the use and interpretation of assays for monitoring autophagy
These guidelines are presented for the selection and interpretation of methods for use by investigators who aim to examine macroautophagy and related processes, as well as for reviewers who need to provide realistic and reasonable critiques of papers that are focused on these processes.

The newly emerged workers and young queens (virgins) had similar cuticular hydrocarbon profiles, which were different from those of the males, and the queens have more abdominal tegumentary glands than the workers, which apparently are the source of the new cuticular compounds.
Comparative anatomy of the male reproductive internal organs of 51 species of bees
The anatomy of the internal organs of the male reproductive apparatus (MRA) of adults and pupae was compared among 51 species of bees, including representatives of six families. Four different types…
Autophagy and its physiological relevance in arthropods: Current knowledge and perspectives
The genetic basis and the physiological meaning of the autophagic process on key models of arthropods are focused on and the involvement of autophagy in programmed cell death, especially during oogenesis and development is discussed.
Effects of glyphosate and the glyphosate based herbicides Roundup Original(®) and Roundup Transorb(®) on respiratory morphophysiology of bullfrog tadpoles.
Hepatic effects of the clomazone herbicide in both its free form and associated with chitosan-alginate nanoparticles in bullfrog tadpoles.
Larval development of Physocephala (Diptera, Conopidae) in the bumble bee Bombus morio (Hymenoptera, Apidae)
The larval development of conopid flies was studied, beginning at the larval instars (LO to L3) and PUP, until the emergence of the imago under laboratory conditions and inside the host.
Impact of an environmental relevant concentration of 17α-ethinylestradiol on the cardiac function of bullfrog tadpoles.
Chemical composition of the dufour gland secretion in queens of Melipona bicolor (Hymenoptera, Meliponini)
Differences in the chemical composition of the Dufour gland secretion of virgin and physogastric queens of Melipona bicolor may indicate the queen fecundity condition and the oxygenated compounds of the physogasts secretion may help to increase their attractiveness.
Size differences in the Dufour gland of Apis mellifera Linnaeus (Hymenoptera, Apidae) between and within the female castes
The Dufour gland is found closely associated with the sting apparatus of all hymenopteran females, playing multiple roles among bees, and among workers, the gland is larger in egg-laying and foragers than it is in newly emerged and nurse workers.
