Figure 3:Overview of an ArcGIS dot representation of all mtDNA haplotypes recorded in each of the 22 Algerian populations that were studied. The two imported haplotypes (C7 and M4) were identified in the east and north of the country, respectively. However, haplotypes A2 and A13 were recorded exclusively in Naama (Ain Sefra). Each dot represents one typed honeybee colony. Overall in the dataset, the most dominant haplotypes were A9 (green), A1 (blue) and A8 (red). Geographical delimitation of the subspecies A. m. intermissa and A. m. sahariensis was based on Haccour 1960; Ruttner et al. 1978; Adam 1983; and Ruttner 1988.
