Genetic structure and phylogenetic relations of cinereous vulture (aegypius monachus) populations in Turkey
Çakmak, Emel; Bilgin, Cemal Can; Department of Biology (2018)
Throughout the world, vulture populations have suffered threatening declines in numbers in recent years. The Cinereous Vulture (Aegypius monachus) is a highly philopatric scavenger that ranges across southern Europe and the central Asian plateau. Turkey holds the second most numerous population in the Western Palearctic but there has been no research on the genetic structure of this particular population. In the present study, we describe the current genetic status of the Turkish population using both mitoc...
Genetic diversity of honey bee populations in Turkey based on microsatellite markers : a comparison between migratory versus stationary apiaries and isolated regions versus regions open to migratory beekeeping
Kükrer, Mert; Kence, Aykut; Department of Biology (2013)
The honey bee (Apis mellifera L.) is a globally significant species of apparent economic and ecological importance. Recent reports from Spain, Italy and Greece point to an intense admixture of honey bee populations signified by a loss of population structure. This is mostly attributed to migratory beekeeping practices and replacement of queens or colonies with commercial ones that are usually from non-native races or hybrids of different subspecies. These two practices are also heavily carried out in parts ...
Genetic structure of honeybee, Apis mellifera L. (Hymenoptera : Apidae) populations of Turkey inferred from microsatellite analysis
Bodur, Cagri; Kence, Meral; Kence, Aykut (2007-01-01)
We analyzed the genetic structure of 11 honeybee (Apis mellifera L) populations from Turkey and one from Cyprus using 9 microsatellite marker loci. Heterozygosity levels, mean number of alleles per population, number of diagnostic alleles, and pairwise F-ST values were computed for the populations studied. Heterozygosity levels were found to range between 0.54 and 0.68. We detected high levels of genetic divergence among the populations based on pairwise F-ST values; 50 of 66 pairwise F-ST values were signi...

Genetic structure analysis of honeybee populations based on microsatellites
Bodur, Çağrı; Kence, Aykut; Department of Biology (2005)
We analyzed the genetic structures of 11 honeybee (Apis mellifera) populations from Türkiye and one population from Cyprus using 9 microsatellite loci. Average gene diversity levels were found to change between 0,542 and 0,681. Heterozygosity levels, mean number of alleles per population, presence of diagnostic alleles and pairwise FST values confirmed the mitochondrial DNA finding that Anatolian honeybees belong to north Mediterranean (C) lineage. We detected a very high level of genetic divergence among p...
