Estimation of heritability of some characteristics of hind legs and wings of honeybee workers (Apis mellifera carnica Polm) using the half-sibs method






Apidologie 25(1): 3-11

Estimation of heritability of some characteristics of hind legs and wings of honeybee workers (Apis mellifera carnica Polm) using the half-sibs method

Morphological measurements were made on 732 workers from 44 colonies in an apiary in Slovenia. The characteristics of the bees were divided into 2 groups and analysed. Characteristics that included sizes of hindleg and hindwing showed more phenotypic and genetic correlation than those of the other group that included hair and cubital index data.
