Histological analysis of fat body development and molting events during soldier differentiation in the damp-wood termite, Hodotermopsis sjostedti (Isoptera, Termopsidae).

Abstract

The caste system of termites is well defined, with a high degree of polyphenism among colony members. Polyphenic caste characteristics are hormonally regulated, and juvenile hormone (JH) is particularly involved in caste determination, as is the case with many other social insects.
