Circadian clocks provide adaptive advantage to their owners by timing their behavioural and physiological processes in accordance with the external environment. Here we report the results of our study aimed at investigating the effect of the interaction between circadian timing system and environmental light/dark (LD) cycles on pre-adult development time of two sympatric species of Componotus ants, the night active Componotus compressus, and the day active C. paria-both species develop in dark… CONTINUE READING
