The mitochondrial genome of the honeybee Apis mellifera: complete sequence and genome organization.
The complete sequence of honeybee (Apis mellifera) mitochondrial DNA is reported being 16,343 bp long in the strain sequenced. Relative to their positions in the Drosophila map, 11 of the tRNA genes… Expand
Genetic Intrigues. (Book Reviews: Evolution of Social Insect Colonies. Sex Allocation and Kin Selection.)
Introduction. Inclusive fitness and sex allocation. The evolution in insects. Evolution of colony characteristics. Intra-colony conflicts over sex allocation. Colony-level variation of sex ratios.… Expand
Sex determination and population biology in the hymenoptera.
The Hymenoptera (ants, bees, wasps and sawflies) display a great variety of social systems and sex ratios and have played a key role in the development and testing of many evolutionary models.… Expand
Integrative taxonomy: a multisource approach to exploring biodiversity.

Good alpha taxonomy is central to biology. On the basis of a survey of arthropod studies that used multiple disciplines for species delimitation, we evaluated the performance of single disciplines.… Expand
The relationship between population genetic structure and pelagic larval duration in coral reef fishes on the Great Barrier Reef
Pelagic larval duration (PLD) is a commonly used proxy for dispersal potential in coral reef fishes. Here we examine the relationship between PLD, genetic structure and genetic variability in… Expand
Modes of spontaneous chromosomal mutation and karyotype evolution in ants with reference to the minimum interaction hypothesis.
Aspects of chromosomal mutation and karyotype evolution in ants are discussed with reference to recently accumulated karyological data, and to detailed karyotype analyses of several species or… Expand
The cytochrome b region in the mitochondrial DNA of the ant Tetraponera rufoniger: Sequence divergence in hymenoptera may be associated with nucleotide content
Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) followed by sequencing of single-stranded DNA yielded sequence information from the cytochrome b (cyt b) region in mitochondrial DNA from the ant Tetraponera… Expand
Phylogenetic evidence for a single, ancestral origin of a ‘true’ worker caste in termites
Phylogenetic analysis based on sequence variation in mitochondrial large‐subunit rRNA and cytochrome oxidase II genes was used to investigate the evolutionary relationships among termite families.… Expand
The CO-I and CO-II region of honeybee mitochondrial DNA: evidence for variation in insect mitochondrial evolutionary rates.
The sequence of a region of honeybee (Apis mellifera ligustica) mitochondrial DNA, which contains the genes for cytochrome c oxidase subunits I and II (CO-I and CO-II) and inferred genes for… Expand
Heterozygosity and Sex Determination in Haplo-Diploidy
- R. Crozier
- The American Naturalist
- 1 September 1971
Sex determination in haplo-diploid animals has been explained by P. W. Whiting's (1939) single-locus, multiple-allele scheme, which is applicable to two cases only, or by da Cunha and Kerr's (1957)… Expand
