The cactus–yeast–Drosophila model system provides an excellent opportunity to investigate the significance of ecological factors in evolution. D. buzzatii and D. koepferae are sister species, with partially overlapping distribution ranges and a certain degree of habitat overlap. The main breeding and feeding resources of D. buzzatii are the decaying cladodes of prickly pears (genus Opuntia), whereas D. koepferae utilizes mainly columnar cacti of the genera Cereus and Echinopsis. These host… CONTINUE READING
