ABSTRACT
The article offers information on a study conducted by the authors related to recombination rate in eusocial hymenoptera vespula vulgaris. It states that genetic map of the insect show that total map lenght is 2129 centimeter, which is smaller than that in honeybee Apis mellifera. It mentions that it is characterized by advanced eusociality with large colonies and well developed task specialization. It highlights that genotypic diversity within colonies may exist for recombination rate.
