Bee Representations in Human Art and Culture through the Ages

The field of bioaesthetics seeks to understand how modern humans may have first developed art appreciation and is informed by considering a broad range of fields including painting, sculpture, music

Sustratos de nidificación y densidad de nidos de abejas sin aguijón en la Reserva de la Biósfera de los Petenes, México.

Las abejas sin aguijón (ASA) son organismos relevantes en los ecosistemas por su desempeño como polinizadores. En México, la mayor diversidad de ASA se encuentra en el sureste. En este estudio se

The Process and Outcome of the Africanization of Honey Bees in Mexico: Lessons and Future Directions

The Africanization of honey bees (Apis mellifera L.) in the Americas is among the most extensive insect invasions in the world, with large-scale effects on the economy and ecology of a whole

Honey compositional convergence and the parallel domestication of social bees

The results show that, independently of the region of the world considered, domesticated stingless bees produce honey whose compositional profiles differ from those of the non-domesticated species and exhibit more similarities towards honeys produced by the domesticated Apis species.

The Insecticide Imidacloprid Decreases Nannotrigona Stingless Bee Survival and Food Consumption and Modulates the Expression of Detoxification and Immune-Related Genes

Exposing N. perilampoides stingless bees to the commonly used neonicotinoid insecticide imidacloprid markedly reduced bee survival and food consumption, revealing the great sensitivity of this stingless bee to the insecticide in comparison to honey bees.

Predicting the past, current, and future climate niche distribution of Tetragonula iridipennis Smith 1854 (Apidae: Meliponini) across the Indomalayan realm: insights into the impact of climate change

Abstract The distribution range of many bee species in Asia has been affected by changing climates. Ecological niche models (ENMs) have many applications for predicting the effects of such changes in

Morphometric and genetic analyses show differentiation of the widely distributed stingless bee Nannotrigona perilampoides (Hymenoptera: Meliponini) across geographic regions in Mexico

The results suggest that N. perilampoides may be composed of distinct evolutionary units and that colony exchange among regions should be restricted to preserve the diversity of this species.

A fungal-based pesticide does not harm pollination service provided by the African stingless bee Meliponula ferruginea on cucumber (Cucumis sativus)

It is demonstrated that M. anisopliae ICIPE 69 did not negatively impact M. ferruginea mortality, pollination behaviour and success, and can therefore be safely used in stingless bee–dependent crop systems.

Sympatric cleptobiotic stingless bees have species-specific cuticular profiles that resemble their hosts

Evidence is presented of the first evidence that sympatric cleptobionts of the same genus select hosts in accordance with species-specific cuticular profiles, with possible consequences for ecological adaptation and the evolution of these remarkable organisms and the community of stingless bee hosts.
