A little is reported so far about the morphometric studies of the Trigona iridipennis Smith as across various districts of Kerala. In the case of the drone bees, highly significant differences were seen only for AL and ML Figure 2 and 3. Biology – Zoology Novel and innovative techniques in Me The components were decided using scree plot and fixed to 5 and 4 components in workers and drones respectively. Kerala state covers an area of 38, km2 with a population sfingless of per km2 and spread across 14 districts Figure 2.
