Volume 13, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 1021-3589



Morphometric characters of worker honeybees, Linnaeus, were analysed by multivariate methods to characterize their populations in the northeastern and southern regions (ecological-climatological zones) of Algeria, from 36°55' to 32°25'N and 3°39' to 8°22'E. Three morphoclusters were identified by using principal components and linear discriminant analyses. The bees are identified as Buttel-Reepen.
