Conflict over sex ratio and male production in paper wasps
TLDR
The influence dominance order among workers may play in regulating worker reproduction, which may be associated with larger colony size, and a relatedness-based theoretical framework does not seem to be important in explaining the sex ratio variation among colonies of Polistes wasps.
Genetic structure of the first brood of workers and mating frequency of queens in a Japanese paper wasp, Polistes chinensis antennalis
Genotypes of a queen and the first brood of workers of 20 colonies of Polistes chinensis antennalis were electrophoretically analyzed. We found allelic polymorphisms in two loci which encodes two
Paradox of worker reproduction and worker mating in temperate paper wasps, Polistes chinensis and P. snelleni (Hymenoptera Vespidae)
TLDR
The differences between the worker characteristics of the two species were investigated and were concluded to be mainly due to differences in the production schedules of new reproductive fem...
