Biodiversity, conservation and current threats to European honeybees
Europe harbours several endemic honeybee (Apis mellifera) subspecies. Yet the distribution of these subspecies is nowadays also much influenced by beekeeping activities. Large scale migratoryExpand
Geographical patterns of mitochondrial DNA variation in Apis mellifera iberiensis (Hymenoptera: Apidae)
An extensive survey of mitochondrial haplotypes in honeybee colonies from the Iberian Peninsula has corroborated previous hypotheses about the existence of a joint clinal variation of African (A) andExpand
Molecular characterization and population structure of Apis mellifera from Madeira and the Azores
L'histoire de l'evolution de l'Abeille domestique (Apis mellifera L.) en Mediterranee occidentale et sur les archipels macaronesiens est probablement le resultat d'evenements complexes deExpand
Maternal diversity patterns of Ibero-Atlantic populations reveal further complexity of Iberian honeybees
Dissecting complex diversity patterns typically exhibited by organisms of hybrid zones is among the greatest challenges in evolutionary biology. This has been a long-standing goal of numerous IberianExpand
New insights into the mitochondrial phylogeny of the whitefly Bemisia tabaci (Hemiptera: Aleyrodidae) in the Mediterranean Basin
The whitefly Bemisia tabaci is vector of plant infecting viruses and it is considered as one of the most important agricultural pests around the Mediterranean basin. At present, five biotypes of B.Expand
Population genetic structure of coastal Croatian honeybees (Apis mellifera carnica)
The genetic structure and molecular diversity of Croatian honeybee coastal populations have been investigated with microsatellite and mitochondrial markers. According to sequence data of theExpand
Localization and activity of rDNA genes in tiger beetles (Coleoptera: Cicindelinae)
Silver staining of male meiotic nuclei of six species of the tiger beetle genus Cicindela (tribe Cicindelini), with multiple sex chromosomes, reveals the presence of active nucleolar organizingExpand
Conserving genetic diversity in the honeybee: Comments on Harpur et al. (2012)
The article by Harpur et al. (2012) ‘Management increases genetic diversity of honey bees via admixture’ concludes that ‘…honey bees do not suffer from reduced genetic diversity caused by managementExpand
Molecular characterization and population structure of the honeybees from the balearic islands (Spain)
Honeybees (Apis mellifera L.) were collected from 23 localities on the Balearic islands in the Mediterranean Sea. The mitochondrial genome (mtDNA) was surveyed for diagnostic restric- tion sites andExpand
Biodiversity of Apis mellifera iberica (Hymenoptera: Apidae) from northeastern Spain assessed by mitochondrial Analysis
The molecular variability has been analysed at the mitochondrial level in 288 honeybee colonies from 28 localities distributed along the four Catalonian provinces. In total sixteen differentExpand
