SummaryEgg-to-adult survival of Adh genotypes of Drosophila melanogaster on ethanol food appears to depend on the age at which the eggs are transferred from regular to ethanol-containing food. Young eggs give much higher viability than old eggs. This seems to be due to an increased ethanol tolerance in eggs exposed to ethanol medium. Additionally it is(More)
The relative fitnesses of the different Adh genotypes under normal laboratory conditions and in the absence of alcohol stress were estimated in Drosophila melanogaster according to Prout's method. The larval component (viability) did not reveal fitness differences between the genotypes but for the adult component significant differences were observed. The(More)
