Recombination and selection in the maintenance of the adaptive value of inversions.


A huge amount of data seem to confirm the adaptive value of inversions in Drosophila. The inhibition of recombination in heterokaryotypes mediated by inversions seems fundamental in maintaining their adaptive role. This study shows that recombination is highly suppressed in Drosophila subobscura because of chromosomal inversions, not only inside the… (More)
