So I was curious to bring this up and see what people thought about this.
If you have a black queen, is it typically a given that she will ACT carniolan and not only look carniolan? And is that the same for the other types?
I basically wondered if there's real correlation between what type they look like, and how they actually act for their genetic inheritance of sub-species? I wonder how much of this we assume, and other thoughts about this. And if there are exceptions, how often do they really occur, or are exceptions pretty slim chances.
When I watch peoples videos they'll be like...check out this Italian queen, or this Carni or Russian queen, and I wonder how sure they are that its really that type? Do you encounter italian queens that look black for example, or Carnis that look gold instead of dark, etc, and how often?
I do get that some of the genetic material comes from the drones. But there's a lot I don't get still.
Like with humans our genes don't correlate with other factors. Like If a blonde hyperactive guy has children, his blonde children may or may not have the hyperactive gene. It doesn't necessarily correlate across the board with many genes of the guy being the same. Do bee genes tend to follow a 'lump sum' transfer (almost clones?) with most following the parent, or do they tend to be total mix like people? Binary or non-binary?
This is hard to word but I tried my best. And having a scientist describe it may not help because they'll use words we layman people don't really understand. Maybe beeks can explain it better.
