Distractibility (the inability to sustain focus on a goal due to attention to irrelevant stimuli) can have a negative effect on basic daily ... mais »

Termite Queen Clones Herself by Making Eggs Impervious to Sperm By Elizabeth Preston | November 21, 2014 7:58 amShare on twitterShare on bloggeShare on gmail [image: Reticulitermes_speratus_Colony01] Even kings and queens that have six legs and live underground aren’t immune to royal machinations. In one Asian termite species, queens choose to shut their mates out of the picture when it’s time to breed a successor. They simply clone themselves to make new queens. To keep the king’s genes away, the queen makes special eggs that have no entrances for sperm—all their drawbridges are pul... mais »
