Bu çalışmada, Türkiye'deki mevcut bal arısı çeşitliliğini geometrik morfometrik yöntemle açıklanmaya çalışılmıştır. Bu amaçla, sağ kanat damarlarındaki kesişim noktalarının sapmaları Draw Wing yazılım programı ile analiz edildi. Popülasyonları kanat damar açılarının kesişim yerlerindeki sapmalara göre ayırt etmek için Generalize Procrustes Analizi ve Temel Bileşen Analizi yapıldı. İlk iki kanonik düzlemde bal arısı popülasyonları Güneydoğu Anadolu ve diğerleri olmak üzere iki ana gruba ayrıldı. Şekil morfolojisi açısından farklılık gösteren Güneydoğu Anadolu'daki bal arıları UPGMA dendrogramında ayrı bir grup oluştururken, Trakya Bölgesi dışında kalan populasyonların tamamı birbirine daha yakın bir grup oluşturmuştur. Saçılım grafiğinde diğerlerinden ayrılmayan Trakya populasyonu UPGMA dendogramında ayrı bir grup oluşturmuştur.
In this study, the honeybee diversity existing in Turkey were explained by geometric morphometric methods. For this purpose, the deviations of the junction points in the right wing veins were analyzed with the Draw Wing software program. Generalized Procrustes Analysis and Principal Component Analysis were performed to distinguish the populations according to the deviations in the intersections of the wing vein angles. In the first two canonical planes, honey bee populations were divided into two main groups, Southeastern Anatolia and others. While honey bees in Southeastern Anatolia, which differ in terms of shape morphology, formed a separate group in the UPGMA dendrogram, all the rest grouped closer with each other except Thrace region, which was not separated from the others in the scatter graph, formed a separate group in the UPGMA dendrogram.
