Bumble bees (Bombus) are unusually important pollinators, with approximately 260 wild species native to all biogeographic regions except Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. As they are vitally impo...

ABSTRACT Bumble bees are important pollinators in natural and agricultural ecosystems. Their social colonies are founded by individual queens, which, as the predominant reproductive females of colonies, contribute to colony function through worker production and fitness through male and new queen production. Therefore, queen health is paramount, but even though there has been an increasing emphasis on the role of gut microbiota for animal health, there is limited information on the gut microbial...

Although inbreeding depression in life-history traits has been well characterized, inbreeding effects on mating behaviour and sexually selected traits have been less well studied. Here, we assess levels of inbreeding depression in a number of fitness-related reproductive parameters of female decorated crickets, Gryllodes sigillatus. We predicted that due to direct negative effects of inbreeding and a potential trade-off between reproduction and current survival, as suggested by effects of inbree...

Abstract Nuptial food gifts are an integral feature of the mating systems of a wide variety of insects. A pervasive feature of the majority of these gifts is that they afford the male direct access to the female's physiology. Although in some cases such gifts may represent a form of nutritional investment in females, an alternative hypothesis posits that nuptial food gifts may allow males to manipulate female physiology in favor of male interests. This hypothesis predicts that the chemical compo...

Patterns of temperature fluctuations in nature affect numerous biological processes, yet, empirical studies often utilize constant temperature treatments. This can limit our understanding of how thermally sensitive species respond to ecologically relevant temperatures. Research on turtles with temperature-dependent sex determination (TSD) provides good examples of this, since nest temperatures from many populations rarely exceed those necessary to produce females under constant laboratory condit...
