Genetic polymorphism and evolution in parthenogenetic animals. II. Diploid and polyploid Solenobia triquetrella (Lepidoptera: Psychidae).
Genic polymorphism at sixteen enzyme loci of four different chromosomal races of Solenobia triquetrella (bisexual, two diploid parthenogenetic races and tetraploid parthenogentiic) has been studiedExpand

Genetic polymorphism and evolution in parthenogenetic animals. IV. Triploid Otiorrhynchus salicis Ström (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)
The genetic variability at 20 enzyme loci in natural populations of Otiorrhynchus salicis Strom was studied by starch gel electrophoresis. Altogether 135 weevils were analyzed. The samples originatedExpand

Independence of Genetic Geographical Variation between Photoperiodic Diapause, Circadian Eclosion Rhythm, and Thr-Gly Repeat Region of the Period Gene in Drosophila littoralis
Drosophila littoralis is a latitudinally widespread European species of the Drosophila virilis group. The species has ample genetic variation in photoperiodism (adult diapause) and circadianExpand

Weak circadian eclosion rhythmicity in Chymomyza costata (Diptera: Drosophilidae), and its independence of diapause type
Abstract Pupal eclosion rhythms were studied in seven strains of C. costata originating between latitudes 43°N in Japan to 69°N in Finland. The strains represented the following types of diapause:Expand

North–south differences in circadian eclosion rhythm in European populations of Drosophila subobscura
The circadian pupal eclosion rhythm was studied in 12 strains of Drosophila subobscura originating from two regions: Scandinavia (56–63°N), and the Canary Islands (28°N). In most parameters of theExpand

Characterization of linne, a new autosomal eclosion rhythm mutant in Drosophila subobscura.
A new putative gene, named linne, affecting circadian eclosion rhythm was found in a Norwegian strain of Drosophila subobscura. The phenotype of linne may be novel among Drosophila clock mutants.Expand

Genetic differentiation in Coregonus albula (L.) (Salmonidae) populations in Finland
Enzyme gene variability has been studied by starch gel electrophoresis in 20 Finnish vendace (Coregonus albula) populations. Eighteen populations originate from fresh water and two from brackishExpand

Genic variation in central and marginal populations of Drosophila subobscura.
The genic variability at twenty loci in marginal, submarginal and central populations of Drosophila subobscura has been studied by starch gel electrophoresis. The samples from marginal populationsExpand
