Genetic tolerance to ethanol in drosophila melanogaster: Increase by selection and analysis of correlated responses


After 28 generations of selection, the alcohol tolerance of a French strain was increased from its initial value of 18% (lethal concentration 50 for adults after two days of treatment) to about 26%. A decrease in the between-individual variation was observed in the selected line. Comparison of the LC 50 after 1, 2 or 3 days of treatment showed that… (More)
