Species-specific attraction to pheromonal analogues in orchid bees

TLDR
It is demonstrated that acquired odours mediate exclusive attraction within species and support the idea that such fragrances are pheromone analogues.

Trick or Treat? Pollinator attraction in Vanilla pompona (Orchidaceae)

TLDR
It is hypothesized that a dual attraction of Eulaema cingulata males to V. pompona flowers is based on floral fragrance reward as the primary long-distance attraction, and food deception for successful pollen removal, to develop appropriate conservation policies for Vanilla crop wild relatives.

Specific Controlling Essential Oil Composition of Basil (Ocimum basilicum L.) Involving Low-Temperature, Low-Pressure Glow Plasma of Low Frequency

The effect of watering basil (Ocimum basilicum L.) with water treated with low-pressure, low-temperature glow plasma of low frequency (LPGP) on growth habits and plant metabolites was tested.

Social signals and aversive learning in honey bee drones and workers

TLDR
It is shown that the effect on aversive learning depends on social role and signal intensity, and that response to them is dependent on signal relevance to the individual as well as the context.

Macroevolution of perfume signalling in orchid bees.

TLDR
Results revealed both high species-specificity and elevated rates of evolution in perfume signals compared to nonsignalling traits, and sister-pair comparisons were consistent with both rapid divergence at speciation and character displacement upon secondary contact, providing new insight into the macroevolution of sexual signalling in insects.

TLDR
Wing wear, an established age indicator of orchid bees, had the only consistent overall effect, being posi- tively correlated with perfume amount and complexity in both species, in agreement with the idea that per- fumes are an honest indicator of male survival capacity.

Correlates of perfume load in male orchid bees

TLDR
Wing wear, an established age indicator of orchid bees, had the only consistent overall effect, being positively correlated with perfume amount and complexity in both species, in agreement with the idea that perfumes are an honest indicator of male survival capacity.

Sag's durch die Blume: Evolution des Parfümsammelns der Prachtbienen (Euglossini) Flowery Messages: Evolution of Perfume Collection in Orchid Bees (Euglossini)

TLDR
Hier stelle ich die Fortschritte bei der Erforschung der Parfumbiologie der Euglossini dar, diskutiere den evolutiven Ursprung des Parfumsammelns and bespreche wahrscheinliche Selektionsdrucke.

ORCHID FLORAL FRAGRANCES AND MALE EUGLOSSINE BEES: METHODS AND ADVANCES IN THE LAST SESQUIDECADE

All species of the Neotropical subtribes Stanhopeinae and Catasetinae (Orchi daceae) are pollinated exclusively by male euglossine bees which are attracted to and collect the floral fragrances. The

Models of Coevolution and Speciation in Plants and Their Pollinators

TLDR
Patterns of mutualistic coevolution are discussed with particular reference to population structure, ecological interactions, and species diversity in orchids and orchid bees, figs and fig wasps, and yuccas and yucca moths.

Specificity and mutual dependency of the orchid‐euglossine bee interaction

TLDR
The orchid-male euglossine bee interaction does not appear to represent a mutually obligatory relationship and the orchids may have exploited a preexisting behavioural phenomenon of the bees, and reciprocal evolutionary responses may not have occurred.
