In this review, we examine the variety of mechanisms that social insect species have evolved to regulate temperature. We divide these mechanisms into two broad categories: active and passive. ‘Passive’ temperature regulation includes such mechanisms as nest site selection to optimize internal nest temperature, nest structures that permit passive heating or cooling, or simple behaviour such as brood translocation to regions within a nest where temperatures are most favourable. ‘Active’ temperature regulation refers to behaviour where individuals modify nest temperature by physical activity like wing fanning or evaporative cooling. Although there is enormous variation in the thermoregulatory mechanisms, there are also many similarities. All thermoregulatory mechanisms are self-organized and arise from simple rules followed by each individual worker.} }
