Record of Chromosomes in Giant honeybee, Apis dorsata Fabricius population from different geo-locations of Southern Karnataka, India

Bidisha Rajak and Basavarajappa Sekarappa

Cytogenetic studies were conducted to record the chromosomes in Apis dorsata population found at different geo-locations of Southern Karnataka by following standard methods. There were 32 chromosomes (2n=32) with long and short lengths observed. The total length of the long and the short chromosomes were measured and an ideogram was prepared based on the length of the chromosomes. However, the statistical analysis of chromosome length observed in A. dorsata population inhabited at different geo-locations of Southern Karnataka revealed no significant chromosome length variation and suggested no considerable variation among the individuals in A. dorsata population live at different geo-locations of Southern Karnataka. Surprisingly, it developed curiosity to undertake further in depth research to measure the variations, if any at molecular level. Results of such observations are published elsewhere.
