Global relationships of Bemisia tabaci (Hemiptera: Aleyrodidae) revealed using Bayesian analysis of mitochondrial COI DNA sequence [abstract]. Florida Entomological Society Annual Meeting.

Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Global phylogenetic relationships of the major races of B. tabaci remain unresolved thus a Bayesian phylogenetic technique was utilized to elucidate affinities. All COI DNA sequence data available in Genbank for B. tabaci world-wide (369 specimens) were obtained and the first well resolved phylogeny for the B. tabaci species complex was produced. Nine major well- resolved (0.70 posterior probability or above) races were recovered. Relationships of the nine major B.tabaci races are discussed herein.
