Genetic characterization of the bees of Kangaroo Island, South Australia

Genetic characterization of the bees of Kangaroo Island, South Australia

Journal of Apicultural Research 31(3/4): 141-148

On Kangaroo Island, South Australia, an introduced population of Apis mellifera ligustica has reputedly not hybridized with other A. mellifera subspecies due to isolation. Bees were collected from each of 24 Kangaroo Island colonies to confirm their subspecies. Electromorph relative frequencies for the Kangaroo Island population were: malate dehydrogenase enzyme system, Mdh65 = 0.13, Mdh80 = 0.11 and Mdh100 = 0.76; esterase system, Est100 = 0.95, and Est130 = 0.05.
