Genetic Heterogeneity Among the Founders of Laboratory Populations of Drosophila Melanogaster I. Mating Behaviour Academic Article uri icon


  • Single inseminated founder females in D. mBlanogastB'I' derived from the same population have led to genetically discrete strains for two behavioural traits: the percentage of pairs mated in 60 min, and duration of copulation. The effect of the founder females persists for many generations. These results are in agreement with earlier work on scutellar chaetae.
