Laboratory evolution of longevity in the bean weevil (Acanthoscelides obtectus)
In this study we examined the effects of long‐term selection on early and late reproduction in the bean weevil. The pure lines and the hybrids between the lines within a selection regime wereExpand

There are few studies on the genetic control of resistance to cold temperature in Drosophila, despite the fact that this component of fitness may be an important adaptation to extreme fluctuations orExpand

Correlation between recombination frequency and fitness in Drosophila melanogaster
The origin and maintenance of genetic recombination are unsettled evolutionary issues. Genetic variation affecting recombination frequency appears to be pervasive in nature, suggesting that naturalExpand

Adaptation of the gypsy moth to an unsuitable host plant
The pattern of adaptation with regard to life history traits and traits thought to be important in feeding habits of caterpillars in two populations of the gypsy moth (Lymantria dispar L.;Expand

Homosexual behaviour and its longevity cost in females and males of the seed beetle Acanthoscelides obtectus
The level of homosexual behaviour is evaluated in one laboratory population of seed beetle and derived lines selected to reproduce early (E) or late in life (L), where inadvertent selection forExpand

Selection for developmental time in bean weevil (Acanthoscelides obtectus): correlated responses for other life history traits and genetic architecture of line differentiation
In this article we investigate the direct and correlated responses to selection for developmental time in order to discern differences between lines in several preadult and adult life history traitsExpand

Age-associated changes in viability genetic loads of Drosophila melanogaster.
The effect of age upon genetic loads for egg-to-adult viability was analysed by comparisons of homozygous and heterozygous progeny of Drosophila melanogaster. Among 74 second chromosome groups ofExpand

The genetic variation and covariation among fitness components in Drosophila melanogaster females and males
The results presented in this study indicate low to moderate level of heritable variation for the following fitness components in Drosophila melanogaster sampled from natural population: early andExpand

LABORATORY EVOLUTION OF LIFE‐HISTORY TRAITS IN THE BEAN WEEVIL (ACANTHOSCELIDES OBTECTUS): THE EFFECTS OF DENSITY‐DEPENDENT AND AGE‐SPECIFIC SELECTION
Four types of laboratory populations of the bean weevil (Acanthoscelides obtectus) have been developed to study the effects of density‐dependent and age‐specific selection. These populations haveExpand

Sex‐specific mitonuclear epistasis and the evolution of mitochondrial bioenergetics, ageing, and life history in seed beetles
The role of mitochondrial DNA for the evolution of life‐history traits remains debated. We examined mitonuclear effects on the activity of the multisubunit complex of the electron transport chainExpand
