Disruptive selection is potentially critical in maintaining variation and initiating speciation and plays an important role in the organization of genetic variability in natural populations. It occurs when extreme phenotypes have a fitness advantage over intermediate phenotypes. Disruptive selection for high and low numbers of sternopleural bristles in Drosophila ananassae was applied for 12 generations to test its effect in induction of behavioural isolation. Pattern of mating between flies of… Expand
