In temperate regions, Drosophila melanogaster has perennial overwintering populations. These populations present seasonal variations, under the influence of developmental temperature, for several genetically determined physiological traits. The capacity of virgin females to control ovulation is one of these characteristics. Phenotypes able to postpone egg-laying in the absence of insemination are favored under low temperature development and are numerous in Autumn generations. Moreover, a shift… CONTINUE READING
