ARTIFICIAL SELECTION FOR DEVELOPMENTAL TIME IN DROSOPHILA MELANOGASTER IN RELATION TO THE EVOLUTION OF AGING: DIRECT AND CORRELATED RESPONSES
A wild‐type strain of Drosophila melanogaster was successfully selected for both fast and slow larval development. The realized heritabilities (h2) ranged from 0.20 to 0.30 for the fast lines andExpand
Natural Selection and Developmental Constraints in the Evolution of Allometries
In animals, scaling relationships between appendages and body size exhibit high interspecific variation but low intraspecific variation. This pattern could result from natural selection for specificExpand
DIRECT SELECTION ON LIFE SPAN IN DROSOPHILA MELANOGASTER
An important issue in the study of the evolution of aging in Drosophila melanogaster is whether decreased early fecundity is inextricably coupled with increased life span in selection experiments onExpand
Evolution of sexual dimorphism in the Lepidoptera.
Among the animals, the Lepidoptera (moths and butterflies) are second only to beetles in number of described species and are known for their striking intra- and interspecific diversity. WithinExpand
Evolutionary dynamics of multilocus microsatellite arrangements in the genome of the butterfly Bicyclus anynana, with implications for other Lepidoptera
The sequences flanking microsatellites isolated from the butterfly Bicyclus anynana display high levels of similarity among different loci. We examined sequence data for evidence of the twoExpand
Genotype×environment interaction QTL mapping in plants: lessons from Arabidopsis.
Plant growth and development are influenced by the genetic composition of the plant (G), the environment (E), and the interaction between them (G×E). To produce suitable genotypes for multipleExpand
PLASTICITY IN BUTTERFLY EGG SIZE: WHY LARGER OFFSPRING AT LOWER TEMPERATURES?
Dividing sister pairs of the butterfly Bicyclus anynana (reared in a common environment) between high and low temperature shows that oviposition temperature induces a plastic response in egg size.Expand
On the developmental theory of ageing. I. Starvation resistance and longevity in Drosophila melanogaster in relation to pre-adult breeding conditions
The developmental theory of ageing predicts a positive correlation between developmental time and adult longevity. Experiments that vary larval density and food level have been carried out to testExpand
Cellular basis of wing size variation in Drosophila melanogaster: a comparison of latitudinal clines on two continents
We investigated the cellular basis of two extensive, continuous, latitudinal, genetic, body size clines of Drosophila melanogaster by measuring wing area and cell size in the wing blade of adultExpand
Correlated responses to selection on body size in Drosophila melanogaster.
Correlated responses to artificial selection on body size in Drosophila melanogaster were investigated, to determine how the changes in size were produced during development. Selection for increasedExpand
