Disruptive selection for sternopleural chaeta number was carried out on various laboratory and wild strains of Drosophila melanogaster. The methods employed were those described by Thoday and Gibson (1962). Experimentation was carried out for 10 generations in some strains and for 42 generations in others. Sterility was a common problem in the selected low lines. Reproductive isolation was not obtained in any of the strains, and preferential mating was not observed during the course of the… Expand
