We initiated 17 laboratory populations of Drosophila simulans: a heterogeneous, chromosomally monomorphic base population (BASE) from which the other 16 were derived; four pairs of selection lines, each pair of which was selected for three different traits in three successive years; and eight genetic-drift lines, each of which experienced six flush-crash cycles after an initial founder event. Every 6 mo for 3 yr we performed tests for reproductive isolation among the selection lines and BASE… Expand
