  • Tests for reproductive isolation between lines selected for locomotor activity were performed. Three sets of selection lines were used, each consisting of lines selected for low and high locomotor activity from the same base population. Females preferred high-activity males in almost every case. However, in one of the sets temporary sexual isolation was found between flies of the high and low lines. This was accompanied in the low-activity females with a higher fertility when they were mated… CONTINUE READING
