Summary of "Chemical Ecology: A New Royal Scent in a Small Insect Society."

Understanding the diversity of insect societies is tied to explaining the mechanisms of reproductive division of labor. Small societies were not expected to use chemical signals or queen pheromones for this purpose. A new study shows that one of them does while using unexpected compounds.
