Abstract

COMPARATIVE MORPHOMETRIC ANALYSIS of shape variation in the wings of different tsetse species reveals close accordance with the phylogenetics of these species indicated by DNA sequence analysis. In practice, the morphometric analysis is economical and simple to carry out, suggesting that this could become a useful surrogate or complementary tool for large-scale studies of tsetse population genetics, designed to identify discrete population targets amenable to local elimination.
