Credentials
I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute where I research the social biology of Megalopta bees. Below are references: Smith, A.R., K.M. Kapheim, S. O’Donnell, & W.T. Wcislo. In Press. Social competition but not subfertility leads to a division of labour in the facultatively social sweat bee Megalopta genalis (Hymenoptera: Halictidae). Animal Behaviour. Smith, A.R., W.T. Wcislo, & S. O’Donnell. 2008. Body size shapes caste expression, and cleptoparasitism reduces body size in the facultatively eusocial bees Megalopta (Halictidae).
