The degree and pattern of sexual isolation among closely related species can be utilized for predicting the direction of evolution and deriving a phylogeny. The Drosophila bipectinata species complex is a group of four morphologically very similar species, belonging to the ananassae subgroup of the melanogaster species group. Sexual isolation among the(More)
[Singh B. N. and Banerjee P. 2015 Sex-specific asymmetry in eye development in interspecific hybrids in the Drosophila bipectinata species complex. There are a number of species pairs, especially in the genus Drosophila, which despite having acquired distinct species status, can still be hybridized. Such species can be very useful for studying hybrid(More)
The Drosophila bipectinata species complex comprises of four very closely related species namely D. bipectinata, D. parabipectinata, D. malerkotliana and D. pseudoananassae. It was found that irrespective of the evolutionary divergence among the species, FA which is reflective of the developmental precision remains nearly same in four species. During the(More)
Making interspecific hybridizations, where possible remains an unparalleled option for studying the intricacies of speciation. In the Drosophila bipectinata species complex comprising of four species, namely D. bipectinata, D. parabipectinata, D. malerkotliana and D. pseudoananassae, interspecific hybrids can be obtained in the laboratory, thus bequeathing(More)
