Ecological genetics of beetles of the genus Adalia: population structure of A. bipunctata of the Crimea depends on climatic factors

Cover Page

Abstract


The composition of 12 populations of Adalia bipunctata L. of the Crimean peninsula was studied. The proportion of black individuals varies from 4.8% to 64.6%. Comparison of the composition of color forms with climatic parameters of habitats showed that the proportion of black individuals in the population positively correlates with the value of moisture during the period of reproduction of beetles (May-July) and negatively correlates with the mean temperatures of these months.
