Contributions to the study of the genetics and evolutionary biology of bumble bees (Hymenoptera: Apidae)

Contributions to the study of the genetics and evolutionary biology of bumble bees (Hymenoptera: Apidae)

Contributions to the study of the genetics and evolutionary biology of bumble bees Hymenoptera: Apidae:

A study of some genetically determined traits of bumble bees gave the following results. (1) Pile colour dimorphism in Bombus melanopygus is controlled by a single gene locus with red dominant to black. The similar red/black dimorphism in B. rufocinctus is controlled by at least two loci, with additional environmental and/or genetic modification. The red alleles are dominant and epistatic to the black ones.
