Abstract (English)

Temperature is one of the most important environmental factors for ectotherms and the temperature experienced during development affects many important life history traits in insects. The eusocial honeybees maintain a more or less constant temperature for their brood (34-35°C) via active thermoregulation. Small deviations from this optimal temperature range affected the synaptic organization in ...

Temperatur ist einer der bedeutendsten Umweltfaktoren für Ektotherme und die Temperatur während der Entwicklung beeinflusst viele wichtige Lebenslaufparameter von Insekten. Die eusozialen Honigbienen halten mittels aktiver Thermoregulation die Temperatur für ihre Brut mehr oder weniger konstant (34-35°C). Bereits geringe Abweichungen vom diesem optimalen Temperaturbereich beeinflussen ...
