Nine Indian geographical populations of Drosophila melanogaster, collected along the 20°N latitudinal range, revealed a significant clinal variation at the alcohol dehydrogenase (Adh) locus, Adh F allelic frequency increasing significantly with latitude (0.036 ! 0.004 for 1° latitude; genetic divergence F ST = 0.25). Patterns of ethanol and acetic-acid(More)
Indian geographical populations of Drosophila immigrans revealed a lack of allozymic variation at the alcohol dehydrogenase locus. Latitudinal clines of ethanol tolerance (1.5-4.2%) and acetic-acid tolerance (2.9-4.9%) were observed in adult individuals of 4 geographical populations of Drosophila immigrans. Thus, both ethanol and acetic-acid tolerance(More)
