Winding up the molecular clock in the genus Carabus (Coleoptera: Carabidae): assessment of methodological decisions on rate and node age estimation
TLDR
The combination of several genes is proposed as the best strategy to minimise both the idiosyncratic behaviors of individual markers and the effect of analytical aspects in rate and age estimations as well as other methodological issues potentially affecting rate estimation.
Biodiversity, conservation and current threats to European honeybees
TLDR
The biodiversity of European honeybees is reviewed and the management and conservation strategies employed by different countries are summarized and a comprehensive picture of the beekeeping industry in Europe is provided.
Forty years of carabid beetle research in Europe – from taxonomy, biology, ecology and population studies to bioindication, habitat assessment and conservation
TLDR
A subjective summary of some of the major developments in carabidology since the 1960s, which can be useful in population studies, bioindication, conservation biology and landscape ecology.
Geographical patterns of mitochondrial DNA variation in Apis mellifera iberiensis (Hymenoptera: Apidae)
TLDR
It has been found that the Iberian Peninsula is the European region with the highest haplotype diversity (12 haplotypes detected of the M lineage and 10 of the A lineage) and the frequency of A haplotypes decreases in a SW-NE trend, while that of M haplotypes increases.
Mitochondrial DNA variability in the Canary Islands honeybees (Apis mellifera L.)
TLDR
The mitochondrial DNA of individuals from 79 colonies of Apis mellifera from five Canary Islands was studied using the DraI test based on the restriction of PCR products of the tRNAleu–COII intergenic region and the haplotypes A14 and A15 are described for the first time.
Molecular characterization and population structure of Apis mellifera from Madeira and the Azores
TLDR
On en a conclu that les abeilles des Canaries avaient probablement une origine africaine avec un certain degre de differenciation du a l'isolement par rapport aux populations continentales.
Genetic structure and distinctness of Apis mellifera L. populations from the Canary Islands
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses indicate that the Canarian honeybees are differentiated from other lineages and provide genetic evidence of their African origin.
Conserving genetic diversity in the honeybee: Comments on Harpur et al. (2012)
TLDR
Concerns are expressed about the conclusions drawn from the results of Harpur et al. (2012), convinced that the large‐scale genetic homogenization of admixed populations could drive the loss of valuable local adaptations in honeybee colonies.
