New publication describing how environmental variables shape the distribution of the Melipona subnitida bee, a key pollinator, and what ar the consequences for the conservation of this endangered species. In Evolutionary Applications. 2019;1–14.
Spatial distribution of adaptive genetic variability in Melipona subnitida. Colors represent interpolated spatial principal components (sPCA) and suggest a latitudinal pattern associated with sPC1 (a) and an altitudinal pattern associated with sPC2 (b). Shaded areas represent elevations of at least 500 masl. Click here or on the image for the paper.
