Similar allozyme polymorphism in honeybees (Apis mellifera) from different continents

  • D. F. Gartside


Honeybees (Apis mellifera) from Australia are polymorphic for 3 enzymes previously reported polymorphic in honeybees from South America: esterase, malate dehydrogenase and alcohol dehydrogenase. However, no genetically determined polymorphism is detected in the 4th protein system found to be variable in South America.
