Abstract

Allozyme electrophoresis showed much genetic variation in Hippodamia convergens , suggesting the possibility of geographic genetic differentiation. Twenty-two of 31 putative allozyme loci resolved on acrylamide gels from H. convergens populations were polymorphic (71%). Heterozygosity (diversity) averaged over all loci was 21.3 ± 4.2%. However, thirteen… (More)
