Oviposition Site Selection by Drosophila Melanogaster and Drosophila Simulans.

Abstract

The effects of texture and larval residues in the medium on oviposition site selection (OSS) by Drosophila melanogaster and Drosophila simulans were studied. Drosophila melanogaster laid over 95% of its eggs in sieved medium (vs. unsieved medium); D. simulans laid all of its eggs in sieved medium. Surgical removal of antennal segments, and of fore-, mid… (More)
