After an inbreeding event, lifespan can be curtailed through the expression of deleterious alleles. This will impact on both mortality patterns and interactions with the environment as visualised in reaction norms. We have established the effects of inbreeding on the temperature dependence of lifespan and on mortality patterns in Drosophila melanogaster. Four inbred lines displaying severely decreased lifespan and five outbred controls were assessed for male adult survival at three temperatures… CONTINUE READING
