Laboratory studies of nestmate recognition in gynes (potential queens) of the social wasp, Polistes fuscatus, indicate that recognition odours have both a heritable and an environmental component. In addition, both endogenous odours (acquired as brood) and adult-acquired odours appear to mediate nestmate recognition. Heritable and environmental, as well as endogenous and adult-acquired recognition odours, are not additive in their effect on tolerance, suggesting a ‘cue similarity threshold… Expand
