Influence of the feeding conditions on competition betweenDrosophila melanogaster andDrosophila simulans for their oviposition site

Abstract

Under low feeding conditions, the number of eggs laid by the femaleDrosophila melanogaster or the femaleDrosophila simulans is frequency dependent: it increases simultaneously with the increase of the frequency of the species to which the female belongs. This result could be explained by the role of scents in the choice of the oviposition site inDrosophila.
