Data from: A quantitative study of worker reproduction in queenright colonies of the Cape honey bee Apis mellifera capensis

Madeleine Beekman, Ben Oldroyd, Michael Allsopp, Alex Jordan & Julianne Lim
Reproduction by workers is rare in honey bee colonies that have an active queen. By not producing their own offspring and preventing other workers from producing theirs, workers are thought to increase their inclusive fitness due to their higher average relatedness towards queen-produced male offspring compared with worker-produced male offspring. But there is one exception. Workers of the Cape honey bee Apis mellifera capensis are able to produce diploid female offspring via thelytokous parthenogenesis and...
