D. nebulosa, collected in two woods of a high background radiation area (both in Iron Hills, State of Minas Gerais, Brazil), were compared to and found to be more resistant than flies collected as controls in two other woods of an adjacent area. This was the second time that average differences in radioresistance between natural populations were established. Previous experiments were carried out with D. willistoni, in the same area and in comparable fashion. In spite of their higher radiation… CONTINUE READING
