This paper reports an example of an abundant soluble protein which differs in electrophoretic phenotype between embryos and adults of the grasshopper,Caledia captiva. It is argued that the change in phenotype is evolutionarily significant for three reasons. First, it is taxonomically widespread. Secondly, the low level of intrapopulational polymorphism… CONTINUE READING
