    Mol Ecol 22:3211-5. 2013
    ..We do not endorse the intentional admixture of honey bee populations, and we agree with De la Rúa et al. (2013) that native honey bee subspecies should be conserved. ..

    Brock A Harpur
    Department of Biology, York University, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
    Mol Biol Evol 30:1665-74. 2013
    ..These results are consistent with the reduced complement of innate immune genes found in social insects and support the hypothesis that some aspect of eusociality renders canonical innate immunity superfluous...

    Brock A Harpur
    Department of Biology and Department of Computer Science and Engineering, York University, Toronto, ON, Canada M3J 1P3
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 111:2614-9. 2014
    ..Our study highlights the significant contribution of worker phenotypes to adaptive evolution in social insects, and provides a wealth of knowledge on the loci that influence fitness in honey bees. ..

    Clement F Kent
    Department of Biology, York University, Toronto, ON, Canada M3J 1P3
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 109:18012-7. 2012
    ..Taken together, these findings suggest that recombination acts to maintain a genetically diverse and dynamic part of the genome where genes underlying worker behavior evolve more quickly...
