Abstract: We conducted a study on the mitochondrial DNA genetic diversity of honeybees from Caucasian Bee samples by morphometric analysis and molecular analyses of three regions of mitochondrial DNA (CytB, COI, and COI-COI intergenic regions). In morphometric study by principal component analysis 32 colonies were grouped in big cluster. ANOVA analyses showed significantly different among 4 groups of honeybees for most studied traits characters. Total of 488 bases in COI-COII region, 981 bases in COI region and 425 bases were obtained after trimming in partial CYT B region. This investigation showed that variation mtDNA regions can be used for the characterization of Azerbaijan honeybees.
