Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) restriction site maps for nine species of the Drosophila obscura subgroup and for Drosophila melanogaster were established. Taking into account all restriction enzymes (12) and strains (45) analyzed, a total of 105 different sites were detected, which corresponds to a sample of 3.49% of the mtDNA genome. Based on nucleotide(More)
To discover the relation between mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) polymorphism and the geographic population structure of Drosophila subobscura previously established for other genetic traits, a wide Paleartic survey was carried out. A total of 24 nucleomorphs was observed among 261 isofemale lines assayed by 11 restriction endonucleases with 38 different sites in(More)
The genetic structure in Atlantic Islands and continental populations of Drosophila subobscura has been studied using autosomal and sex-linked allozymes and mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) haplotypes. From the data it is deduced that whereas the Canary islands have long been isolated, the neighboring island of Madeira has been subjected to continuous migration(More)
A sample of 1359 males and 1 259 females from a natural population of Drosophila melanogaster of the Canary Islands was simultaneously examined for wing length, inversion polymorphisms, and gene variation at 10 allozyme loci. Correlations and nonrandom associations between those genetic traits were estimated. In contrast to previous studies, large amounts(More)
