Path Analysis of Honey Yield Components Using Different Correlation Coefficients in Caucasian Honey Bee

M. Topal, B. Emsen and A. Dodologlu    

Abstract: An experiment was conducted, using coefficients of Pearson correlation (r), Spearmanís rho (rs) and Kendallís tau (τ) to invastigate direct and indirect effects among honey yield and brood area, number of frames covered with bees, weight gain during nectar flow period, sealed queen cell height, emergence weight and pre-oviposition period in Caucasian honey bees. Correlation coefficients between honey yield and weight gain during nectar flow period were found positive and higher than that of other correlations in Caucasian honey bee. Number of frames covered with bees had significant positive relationship with honey yield and weight gain during nectar flow period according to r, rs and in Caucasian. Results derivatives exhibited with respect to the 3 relation measures similarity. The direct effect of WGN and BA on honey yield and indirect effect of NFB on honey yield via WGN were found high and positive in respect of r, rs and τ
