Abstract

Part of this article, by two members of the Department of Biology, Faculty of Science, Ankara University, Ankara Turkey, was presented at the International Symposium on Authenticity and Quality of Bee Products, April 2010, Crete. Using geometric morphometric approaches it has been found that, based on both landmark and outline analysis of forewing, the honey bees from western Turkey are statistically different from honey bees distributed in the other parts of Turkey.
