Polymorphism in the protein of the thoracic muscle of an endemic bee (Anthophora pauperata) in the St Katherine Protectorate

MAM Mahmoud, SS El-Akkad, SM Zalat, SA Awni

Abstract


Genetic variability of the solitary bee Anthophora pauperata, endemic to the St Katherine Protectorate, was assessed within and between seven wadis in South Sinai, Egypt. Low levels of variation were found, with most diversity within rather than between sites. There were a total of 34 bands, of which only seven were polymorphic among individuals.
