 Title    A Comparative Study of the Endocrine System of the Honey Bee Larvae under Normal and Experimental Conditions  
 Abstract    The endocrine system of the honey bee (Apis mellifera L.) has been studied morphologically through post-embryonic development with several histological techniques. Marked differences in the structure of the neurosecretory complex of queen and worker larvae have been observed during larval stages. In queen larvae, morphogenesis of the neurosecretory cells, their axons and the formation of the chiasma takes place during end of 2nd and beginning of 3rd, in the workers at beginning of 4th larval instar. Stainable neurosecretory material was found in queen larvae at the beginning, in worker larvae at the end of 4th instar. In early larval stages, the corpora allata are more active in the queen. During initial 3 — 5 days of larval development the gland volume is reduced in both castes. After 36 to 48 hours of endocrine retardation, the glands become active again. The same histological effects are found under experimental conditions, where worker larvae of 2nd instar were reared in the incubator on basic food, Royal Jelly and with topically applied juvenile hormone I.
