oa African Entomology - Discriminant analysis of the honeybee populations of southwestern Africa



The morphometric characters and sting pheromones of worker honeybees, Apis mellifera Linnaeus, were analysed by multivariate methods to characterize their populations in southwestern Africa. There is a discrete homogeneous population in northern South Africa and southern Namibia recognized as the subspecies A m. scutellata, a discrete population in northern Namibia recognized as A m. adansonii and a hybrid population between them.
