Allozyme polymorphism at 15 loci of D. simulans was studied in 7 natural populations from Europe, North and tropical Africa. Morphological traits were studied in nine European and eleven Afrotropical strains.Within a population, the biochemical polymorphisms of Drosophila simulans and its sibling Drosophila melanogaster are not very different, although D. simulans has a lower heterozygosity. Between-populations genetic differentiation is however much lower in D. simulans than in D. melanogaster… CONTINUE READING
