European honey bee (Apis mellifera L.) (Hymenoptera: Apidae) colonies kept at high elevations in Costa Rica tested for African DNA markers






Bee Science 2(1): 25-32

European honey bee (Apis mellifera L.) (Hymenoptera: Apidae) colonies kept at high elevations in Costa Rica tested for African DNA markers

A small apiary (E) of European honey bees at an altitude of 2200 m was thought to have remained free from introgression of African paternal genes. In order to check this, samples of uncapped worker larvae were taken from the 7 surviving E colonies, and also from 3 African (A) colonies at an altitude of 700 m; all samples were analysed for 2 types of DNA.
