Summary: The montane honeybee, Apis nuluensis, is adapted to the Mt. Kinabalu highlands of Borneo. We analyzed the phylogenetic position of this bee using three mitochondrial genes, 16S ribosomal RNA (16S) and cytochrome oxidases subunit 1 and 2 (CO1 and CO2). The earlier suggestion that A. nuluensis is closely related to A. cerana was supported. We showed that this honeybee may derive from an isolated population of honeybees that colonized Borneo during Plio-Pleistocene glaciations. Based on… Expand

New haplotypes of Apis cerana in Indonesia: identification from mitochondrial and major royal jelly protein 2 genes
TLDR
The genetic distance proved the separation of the Indonesian A. cerana lineage with the Indo-Malayan lineage (Sabah, Sarawak, and Kalimantan) from previous studies, giving rise to the possibility of the emerging new subspecies of A. Cerana. Expand
Molecular systematics of the neotropical scorpion genus Tityus (Buthidae): the historical biogeography and venom antigenic diversity of toxic Venezuelan species.
TLDR
The principal phylogenetic result was the strong support for mtDNA clades representing geographical groupings associated with the Perijá mountain range, the Mérida Andes, or the central and eastern coastal ranges in Venezuela, suggesting that vicariance has been a potent force in the diversification of local scorpions.

Phylogenetic Uniqueness of Honeybee Apis Cerana from the Korean Peninsula Inferred from The Mitochondrial, Nuclear, and Morphological Data
TLDR
A comparative analysis of the whole mtDNA sequences of A. cerana from Korea and Taiwan showed that Korean and Japanese A. c. Expand
The complete mitochondrial DNA sequence of endemic honeybee Apis nuluensis (Insecta: Hymenoptera: Apidae) inhabiting Mount Kinabalu in Sabah Province, Borneo Island
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationship, inferred using 13 PCGs, was consistent with that reported in previous studies that predicted a sister taxon relationship between A. nuluensis and A. cerana. Expand
Nuclear mitochondrial DNA: an Achilles’ heel of molecular systematics, phylogenetics, and phylogeographic studies of stingless bees
TLDR
A checklist is proposed to help to identify the most conspicuous numts within Melipona as well as Hymenoptera, since several evidences of numts were found within this order. Expand
Phylogenetic relationship of Turkish Apis mellifera subspecies based on sequencing of mitochondrial cytochrome C oxidase I region.
TLDR
This study examines DNA sequence diversity in the cytochrome C oxidase I (COI or Cox1) gene segment of the mitochondrial genome in 112 samples of Apis mellifera from 15 different populations in Turkey and presents the first comprehensive sequence analysis of this region in Turkish honeybees. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of the stingless bees (Apidae, Apinae, Meliponini) inferred from mitochondrial 16S rDNA sequences
TLDR
The African genus Hypotrigona was placed as the most basal branch in the tribe, followed by Austroplebeia as the sister group of other two major clades (C and D). Expand
Diversity of Apis mellifera Subspecies from Turkey Revealed by Sequence Analysis of Mitochondrial 16s rDNA Region
TLDR
This study presents the first comprehensive sequence analysis of this region in Turkish honeybees, and it reveals 11 haplotypes for this segment of mitochondrial 16s rDNA, with 13 variable sites and nine parsimony informative sites. Expand
Mitochondrial variation and genetic differentiation in honey bees (Apis cerana, A. koschevnikovi and A. dorsata) of Borneo
TLDR
P phylogenetic analyses of specimens using the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase subunit 1 (CO1) sequences confirmed previous findings that genetic differentiation among local groups of A. koschevnikovi was much greater than among A. cerana and A. dorsata. Expand
Genetic variation in Turkish honeybees Apis mellifera anatoliaca, A. m. caucasica, A. m. meda (Hymenoptera: Apidae) inferred from RFLP analysis of three mtDNA regions (16S rDNA-COI-ND5)
TLDR
Six novel composite genotypes (haplotypes) were found in Turkish honey bee populations and the most common haplotype, type 1, was found in 12 of the sampled populations and overall accounted for 85.5% of the samples. Expand

Biogeography of Apis cerana F. and A. nigrocincta Smith: insights from mtDNA studies
TLDR
This study adds new data from Korea and the Philippines to earlier mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA)-based studies of the phylogeography of Asian cavity-nesting honeybees, revealing 41 haplotypes that appear to be strongly influenced by changes in sea-level during Pleistocene glaciations. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships in the honeybee (genus Apis) as determined by the sequence of the cytochrome oxidase II region of mitochondrial DNA.
TLDR
The complete nucleotide sequence of the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase II (COII) gene was determined for five species of the honeybee and suggests that A. dorsata is the most ancestral species, followed by the branching of A. andreniformis and A. koschevnikovi. Expand

TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses based on parsimony and maximum likelihood indicate that the cuckoo bumblebees form a monophyletic group within the true bumblebee group, and a strong A + T bias is recorded. Expand
