- Differences in the number of sensilla coeloconica and sensilla ampullacea of segment 10 of the antennae of Africanized and Caucasian bees and of their F1 hybrids
- Universidade Estadual Paulista (UNESP)
- The numbers of sensilla coeloconica and sensilla ampullacea of segment 10 of the antennae of Caucasian and Africanized worker bees and of their hybrids were counted with the aid of a scanning electron microscope. Africanized bees have fewer sensilla than Caucasian bees and the continuous distribution obtained from the F1 values suggests polygenic inheritance for the control of this trait. There are also indications that the hybrid Brazilian Apis mellifera studied here are close to typical African bees (Apis mellifera scutellata) in terms of number of sensilla.
