Intra- and Interspecies Differences in the ISSR-PCR Patterns of Bumble Bee (Hymenoptera : Bombinae)

Berezovska O. P., Moroz O. Yu., Sidorenko A. P.

 




Variation in the ISSR patterns was studied in queens of five species of bumble bee habitating on the territory of Ukraine and Belarus. Species-specific characteristics were obtained for B. sylvarum, B. lapidarius, B. pascuorum, B. terrestris, and B. hortorum with using (GTG)7A and (AG)6G as primers. Some ISSR markers were common for the groups of species. From 73 to 100% ISSR markers were invariant within the species. Individual characteristics of B. terrestris from geographically distant populations from Kiev and Minsk Oblasts were similar. The level of intraspecific variation was different among the species. Taking into account intraspecific constancy of the major ISSR-PCR patterns and in the same time their susceptibility to individual differences we proposed these markers could be used to elucidate some complicated questions of bumble bee taxonomy.
