Plasticity in circadian rhythms in honeybees (and other social insects) is associated with the division of labour that organizes their societies and is therefore functionally significant foragers rely on the circadian clock for timing visits to flowers, for time-compensated sun-compass navigation and for sun-guided waggle dance communication. The logical first step toward understanding adaptation in honeybees is to identify the level (or levels) of biological organization at which natural selection operates in social insects. Academiaedu is a platform for academics to share research papers. Thus, the relationship between foraging gene expression and behavioral caste differentiation previously identified in ants and wasps has been confirmed in another social insect with a different system of labor determination.
