Abstract (English)

Social insects are prominent model organisms of evolutionary biology. Their castes are an example of phenotypic plasticity and differential gene expression produces strong differences among their traits. The highly structured life of social insects is characterized by reproductive division of labor and complexity of communication. For instance, in social Hymenoptera or termites the presence of a ...
