However, the effects of abnormal incubation temperatures are subtle and not well documented. Here we show that short-term learning and memory abilities of adult workers are affected by the temperature they experienced during pupal development. In contrast, long-term learning and memory is not significantly affected by rearing temperature. Furthermore, we could detect no effects of incubation temperature on fluctuating asymmetry, as a measure of developmental stability, in workers, queens or drones. We conclude that the most important consequence of abnormal rearing temperatures are subtle neural deficiencies affecting short-term memory rather than physical abnormalities.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/page/termsofuse"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dc:contributor>Beekman, Madeleine</dc:contributor> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Publ. in: Journal of Comparative Physiology A ; 191 (2005), 12. - pp. 1121-1129</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dc:creator>Helliwell, Paul</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Helliwell, Paul</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-11-30T08:51:07Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Oldroyd, Benjamin</dc:creator> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-11-30T08:51:07Z</dc:date> <dcterms:issued>2005-12</dcterms:issued> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/17181"/> <dc:contributor>Oldroyd, Benjamin</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Jones, Julia</dc:creator> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:contributor>Maleszka, Ryszard</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
