Effects of Genetic Diversity on thermoregulation in Apis mellifera.

Foo, Bill.
2011

Honeybee queens mate with a large number of males. In our experiment, our honeybee queens mated with between 20-37 males. The evolution of hyperpolyandry in honeybees (Apis mellifera) is an interesting phenomenon, given that it will reduce the average relatedness amongst workers and potentially decrease the fitness benefits derived from cooperation. Past studies have suggested that mating with up ... read more
