Scattergram Printing Template
Colony Reference Number...............................
Use The matrix below for recording
the details of a 30 bee sample.
CI = Cubital Index
DS = Discoidal Shift
Col = Colour
Tom = Tomenta breadth
O/H = Overhairs
Tng = Tongue length
When using the Scattergram, mentally divide each square into 5 or six
dot positions similar to the spots on a dice. So that if you have
identical references you can use the additional spot positions to
increase the apparent density.
The symbols shown in the Record columns should be
entered in the columns of the details matrix shown left.
Some systems record <0.35 mm as short and 0.35 mm - 0.4 mm as
medium overhair length.
These charts and matrices owe much to the originals produced by BIBBA
Set Side margins 12.5 mm, Top margin 12.5 mm and Bottom margin 20 mm.
