Correlated Changes in Body Melanisation and Mating Traits of Drosophila melanogaster: A Seasonal Analysis

Abstract

Altitudinal localities of the northern India are associated with high seasonal changes. Drosophila melanogaster flies are darker during the winter season as compared to the autumn season. We tested the hypothesis whether there are altitudinal clines for mating related traits. We observed negative cline for mating latency and positive for copulation period… (More)
