HE adaptive importance of chromosomal polymorphism in Drosophila has T been demonstrated through analysis of natural populations as well as through experiments in the laboratory (c j . DOBZHANSKY 1951; PATTERSON and STONE 1952; DA CUNHA 1955). However, in different species the genetic variability takes different forms, and chromosomal inversions are characteristic of the adaptive polymorphism in some species of Drosophila but not in others. Even within the groups of species which exhibit… CONTINUE READING
