Gametes from each of 19 Australasian collections of Drosophila melanogaster were characterised for polymorphic Adh and Gpdh allozyme loci and the two chromosome-2 common cosmopolitan inversions In(2L)t and In(2R)NS.-No consistent gametic disequilibria for the loosely linked combinations of Adh-Gpdh and Adh-In(2R)NS were found over the 19 collections. However, strong and consistent gametic disequilibria were found for the tightly linked combinations of Adh-In(2L)t and Gpdh-In(2L)t. The results… CONTINUE READING
