    The COI-COII intergenic region of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) was studied in local honeybee ( Apis mellifera mellifera) L. populations from the Middle and Southern Urals. Analysis of bee colonies in these regions revealed apiaries enriched in families descending from A. m. mellifera in the...

    Eight microsatellite loci were used to investigate the genetic structure of the giant honeybee (Apis dorsata) population in northeast India. This species migrates seasonally between summer and winter nesting sites, and queens appear to return to their previously occupied site. Furthermore, there...

    When forager honeybees (Apis mellifera) return to the hive after a successful foraging trip, they unload the collected liquid to recipient hive mates through mouth-to-mouth contacts (trophallaxis). The speed at which the liquid is transferred (unloading rate) from donor to recipient is related...

    The Red Dwarf honeybee ( Apis florea) is one of two basal species in the genus Apis. A. florea differs from the well-studied Western Hive bee ( Apis mellifera) in that it nests in the open rather than in cavities. This fundamental difference in nesting biology is likely to have implications for...

    Honeybees are threatened by over 18 viruses, nowadays deformed wing virus (DWV) is known to be one of the most prevalent virus worldwide.. This is the first study in Algeria and most North Africa region which is evaluating the prevalence of the DWV in beehives. The objective of this study is to...

    We studied possible host finding and resistance mechanisms of host colonies in the context of social parasitism by Cape honeybee (Apis mellifera capensis) workers. Workers often join neighboring colonies by drifting, but long-range drifting (dispersal) to colonies far away from the...

    Pax group III genes are involved in a number of processes during insect segmentation. In Drosophila melanogaster, three genes, paired, gooseberry and gooseberry-neuro, regulate segmental patterning of the epidermis and nervous system. Paired acts as a pair-rule gene and gooseberry as a segment...

    The honeybee is a small, common, and helpful flying insect. There are three distinct types of bees in each hive. The queen bee lays the eggs and is in charge of the colony. Many worker bees perform various tasks within the colony and fly out from the colony to bring in nectar, water, and pollen....
