Abstract

Morphometric analysis of 15 forewing characters of hybrid honey bees (Apis mellifera ligustica x A. m. carnica) collected on different dates in April-October from the same hive in Udine, Italy, revealed that almost all showed significant variations over the period. The observed variations ranged from 3% to 29%.
