Data from: Molecular identification of cryptic bumblebee species from degraded samples using PCR-RFLP approach

Salla-Riikka Vesterlund, Jouni Sorvari & Anti Vasem├Ągi
The worldwide decline and local extinctions of bumblebees has raised a need for fast and accurate tools for species identification. Morphological characters are often not sufficient and molecular methods have been increasingly used for reliable identification of bumblebee species. Molecular methods often require high quality DNA which makes them less suitable for analysis of low quality or older samples. We developed an efficient PCR-RFLP identification method for four bumblebee species of the subgenus Bombus s....
