Linkage disequilibrium was detected in 12 out of 30 cases involivng gene alleles and inversions in three cage populations and in a natural population of Drosophila melanogaster from Greece. The cage populations possessed practically the same gene pool at their origin and were maintained simultaneously under the effects of the ecological factors "food medium" and "humidity". It is dicussed that the correlation of the same direction found between the frequencies of nonallelic elements of Adh… CONTINUE READING
