  Title Winner–loser effects in a eusocial wasp Type Journal Article
  Year 2016 Publication Abbreviated Journal Insectes Sociaux

  Abstract What makes some individuals behaviorally more dominant than others? Although intrinsic factors such as body size and age have been well studied, extrinsic social factors like winner and loser effects have never before been addressed in eusocial species. Here we demonstrated the existence of both winner and loser effects in the primitively eusocial wasp, Ropalidia marginata. Such relative self-assessment and adjustment of fighting abilities may have significant implications for survival and fitness, and could be adaptive, especially in a social species where dominance encounters with conspecifics is the norm.
