Abstract

Evidence is presented which indicates that sex-limited alleles are of importance for the genetic variability of the Hymenoptera. A coefficient for sex limitation is formulated; such a coefficient indicates that about 14% of the detrimental alleles in Apis mellifera are limited to females.
