Ten isofemale lines of Drosophila melanogaster, recently collected in a French vineyard, were submitted to 7 different developmental temperatures, from 12 to 31°C, encompassing the whole physiological range of the species. For each line and temperature, 10 flies of each sex were collected randomly and 2 size-related traits were measured: wing and thorax length. Both traits exhibited similar response curves: a maximum size at a low temperature and a decrease on both sides. ANOVA showed… CONTINUE READING
