FROM the researches of SchjelderupEbbe (1922) until now, studies FROM about the social hierarchy in the vertebrate animals have made considerable progress. It has been possible to enlarge the ideas about hierarchy based upon dominance to all the classes of vertebrates (except the amphibians); also it has been possible, for the majority of the observed species, to individuate some internal and external factors of the phenomenon. Moreover, Allee and his collaborators (e.g., 1939) have had success… 

ON THE PLEOMETROTIC ROUTE OF SOCIAL EVOLUTION IN THE VESPIDAE

TLDR
The switch-over from functional differentiation among communally nesting females to mother-daughter caste systems suggested by MICHENER (1958, 1974) can be explained, in part, by this hypothesis.

Polistes paper wasps: a model genus for the study of social dominance hierarchies

TLDR
The extensive inter- and intra-specific variation of Polistes in the formation and maintenance of hierarchies, as well as levels of within-colony aggression are discussed, highlighting the utility of this variation for comparative studies and the immense potential of the genus Poliste to address fundamental and unanswered questions about the evolution and Maintenance of dominance behavior in animals.

Hierarchy and Its Relation To Territory in the Cockroach Nauphoeta Cinerea

TLDR
The role of the hierarchy in the social organisation of a group of male cockroaches was determined and specifically to determine the advantages of high rank and there was no correlation between rank and mating success.

Agonistic Interactions and Reproductive Dominance in Pachycondyla Obscuricornis (Hymenoptera: Formicidae)

TLDR
In phylogenetically more primitive ant species, the queen and worker castes are often poorly differentiated, or in which the morphological queen caste has even disappeared entirely and reproduction is performed by mated workers (gamergates), the behavioral mechanisms regulating reproduction within the colony are complex and variable.

Commentary: Extrinsic versus Intrinsic Factors in the Evolution of Insect Sociality

Over the past few years, there has been a veritable flood of speculation regarding the evolution of social behavior, especially in Hymenoptera. A partial list of papers might include Lin and Michener

Reproduction in foundress associations of the social wasp, Polistes carolina: conventions, competition, and skew

TLDR
The persistence of some aggressive conflict throughout the foundress period suggests that this convention is not absolute, and Reproductive partitioning in early P. carolina colonies may have more to do with enhancing worker production than with conflict over direct fitness.

Regulation of Social Hierarchy Over Time in Colonies of the Primitive Eusocial Wasp Mischocyttarus (Monocyttarus) cassununga. Von Ihering, 1903 (Hymenoptera, Vespidae)

TLDR
There are three main factors regulating social organization in this species: queen longevity, a stable linear hierarchy, and the constant control of the queen over the social organization of the colony.

Soziale und reproduktive Dominanz bei Insekten

TLDR
Social dominance describes the relationships between individuals in hierarchical social systems within insects, which have developed among males as well as among females, and some factors influencing and controlling dominant behavior are briefly described.

Building pheromones ofVespa orientalis andPolistes foederatus

TLDR
It would seem that hornets resting in a particular spot for a length of time deposit there a substance—probably volatile—which induces assembly of hornets in that spot, and it is proposed to name this substance a building initiating pheromone.

The role of males in a neotropical paper wasp, Polistes ferreri Saussure, 1853 (Hymenoptera, Vespidae, Polistinae)

TLDR
Behavior observations were carried out on three colonies of Polistes ferreri Saussure, 1853, from postemergence to decline phases, and some performed acts by males seem to be related to the tasks in the nests and to the mating behavior.

TLDR
This work is concerned with an analysis of certain of the physiological and psychological factors which underlie the establishment and maintenance of this socialorder in flocks of White Leghorn hens.

TLDR

TLDR
Under the conditions of the experiment the organized flocks show group-survival values which, if they occurred in nature, might afford a basis for natural selection.
