Effect of bottleneck sizes, on sexual isolation, mating speed and fertility were studied in D. malerkotliana established from natural population. After 10 generations of laboratory breeding, flies showed incipient sexual isolation between control line and some bottleneck lines and also between bottleneck lines. These findings do not fully agree with the(More)
Intra and interspecific competition experiments involving control and bottleneck lines of monomorphic and polymorphic populations of D.malerkotliana with D.nasuta nasuta have been carried out. Productivity and population size were evaluated in these lines. The results show that control line had higher relative fitness and adaptedness (productivity and(More)
Phenotypic or morphological differences among different populations and sexual dimorphism in certain metric traits were analysed in D. bipectinata complex. It was noticed that different populations of D. bipectinata species group harbour large amount of variation for these characters. In all the populations, morphometric characters such as lengths of femur,(More)
Some males of D. biarmipes--synonym of D. rajasekari and D. raychaudhuri have a black patch on the wing. The patch extends from the apical margin of wing to the third longitudinal vein. Field and laboratory studies have been carried out in D. biarmipes to study role of male's wing patch in mating success. The field study shows that nature favors D.(More)
Mating success of large and small flies of Drosophila malerkotliana and D. bipectinata was studied using multiple, male and female choice methods. In multiple choice method the large male mated with large female and small male paired with small female. In female choice method, large male was successful in mating with female irrespective of its size while in(More)
In this paper, we present the design and simulation of silicon-on-insulator (SOI) based integrated optic Directional Coupler. Planar waveguide devices based on SOI architecture offer attractive possibility of miniaturization because of the high difference in refractive index between Silicon and SiO2. It has been shown that this technology offers the ability(More)
This paper proposes a fuzzy logic control technique for minimizing the torque ripple in BLDC motor. To reduce the torque ripple, the commutation interval time should be firstly known. The conventional methods of torque ripple reduction require parameters and commutation interval time computation which is sensitive to parameter variation. The proposed method(More)
