In five Indian localities, it was possible to collect D. melanogaster in two different types of habitats, namely ordinary domestic and alcohol rich ones. Tolerance and utilization capacity of several alcohols and of acetic acid were analyzed in a total of 10 local populations. Results on two other species (D. repleta and D. immigrans) were also available from one place. In each locality, the population from alcohol rich habitat proved to be more tolerant to all the investigated products and… CONTINUE READING
