Abstract

Here we report the genome sequence of the honeybee Apis mellifera, a key model for social behaviour and essential to global ecology through pollination. Compared with other sequenced insect genomes, the A. mellifera genome has high A+T and CpG contents, lacks major transposon families, evolves more ...

Abstract

The concept of a suite of foraging behaviors was introduced as a set of traits showing associative directional change as a characterization of adaptive evolution. I report how naturally selected differential sucrose response thresholds directionally affected a suite of honey bee foraging behaviors. ...

Abstract

Canonical trend surface analysis (CTSA) is a powerful multivariate statistical method that finds linear combinations of morphological data which have maximum correlation with geographic space. In this study, CTSA was applied to morphometric variation among 42 Africanized honey bee populations from...

Abstract

The principal selective factor in the ecology of Apis mellifera scutellata (referred to as the 'highland bee') may be the unpredictable variable rainfall of the arid to semi-arid zone of Africa in which it lives. This affects plant growth, and thus nectar and pollen availability. The colony...
