Genetic clusters of Syrian, Lebanese and Iraqi honeybee populations using Structure program. a: Identification of the number of genetic clusters in the 14 microsatellite dataset using the method of , K is the number of clusters. b: Genetic clustering of Syrian honeybee and other honeybee subspecies representing the four evolutionary lineages M, A, C and O, using 14 microsatellite loci and STRUCTURE program v 2.3.3. Bleu cluster is the analysed populations from Syria, Lebanon and Iraq, while the other colours are clusters of honeybee subspecies from the four evolutionary lineages.
