We examined the role of small Hsp genes (Hsp23 and Hsp40) and heat shock gene Hsr-omega in the thermoadaptation of Drosophila melanogaster inhabiting a highly heterogeneous microsite (Nahal Oren canyon, Carmel massif, Israel). We tested whether interslope differences in Drosophila thermoadaptation, revealed in our previous studies, are associated with the… CONTINUE READING
