Social biology ofParischnogaster jacobsoni (Du Buysson) (Hymenoptera Stenogastrinae)

  • S. Turillazzi
Article

Summary

Parischnogaster jacobsoni, studied in Malaysia, presents long linear nests and haplometrotic nest foundation. In mature colonies more than one fertilized female and at least one potential egg layer can be found. Dominance-subordinance interactions are correlated with the reproductive potential of the females and with the division of labour. This species resemblesParischnogaster nigricans serrei, studied in Java, in its biology, nest architecture and social organization.

Biologie sociale deParischnogaster jacobsoni (du Buysson) (Hymenoptera Stenogastrinae)

Resume

Parischnogaster jacobsoni, qui a été étudiée en Malaisie, a de longs nids linéaires et présente une fondation du nid haplométrotique. Dans les colonies mûres on retrouve communément plus d'une femelle fertilisée et au moins une femelle qui peut pondre. Les interactions de dominance-subordination sont liées au potentiel reproductif des femelles et à la division du travail. La biologie, l'architecture du nid et l'organisation sociale de cette espèce ressemblent à celles deParischnogaster nigricans serrei, qui a été étudiée à Java.
