Variability of mitochondrial deoxyribonucleic acid (mtDNA) has been studied in 973 colonies from 23 populations of the west European honey bees (lineage M) using restriction profiles of a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplified DNA fragment of the COI-COII intergenic region. Although populations are almost always introgressed by two other mtDNA lineages (A and C), results confirmed that the original haplotypes in western Europe are those of mtDNA lineage M. Iberian populations (Apis mellifera… CONTINUE READING
