Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Honey bees are of enormous value to both society and science. Their contributions to our agricultural systems are essential, and the recent global declines in honey bee populations has lead to an increased interest in their health and management. Furthermore, their intricate social behavior has fascinated us for centuries, and has led to development of many theories about the evolution of these complex systems. The study of honey bee biology is trans-disciplinary, encompassing physiology, behavioral ecology, chemical ecology, ecological interactions, and evolutionary biology. With the sequencing of the honey bee genome in 2006, genomic tools and resources can now be brought to bear on this fascinating model system. These approaches have yielded substantial insights into the molecular mechanisms regulating honey bee social behavior and health, including creating entirely new fields of study in insect biology, such as epigenetics. In this issue, we will highlight the impact of genomic and molecular techniques to the extraordinarily diverse recent advances in our understanding of honey bee biology and health.
