Communication is fundamental to social life. In insects, social communication has been extensively studied in the highly social ants, bees and termites, but much less so in the ““other insect societies””, a diverse assemblage of species that live in groups for at least part of their life cycle. Recent research is uncovering a complex and diverse array of communication systems in these group-living insects, often involving substrate-borne vibrational signals. We provide an overview of the… CONTINUE READING
