  • Five laboratory populations of Drosophila melanogaster previously selected for over 60 generations for larval resistance to ammonium chloride (NH4Cl), and five populations selected for over 60 generations for larval resistance to urea, were investigated to determine the genetic mechanisms through which such tolerance had evolved. To examine the genetics of tolerance to urea and ammonia, egg-to-adult survivorship and developmental time were measured at two different NH4Cl levels and two… CONTINUE READING
