Response to environmental change: genetic variation and fitness in Drosophila buzzatii following temperature stress.

Abstract

Drosophila buzzatii typically may encounter high temperatures in nature, and this species is genetically variable for resistance to stress, both within and among populations. Fitness of survivors to stress, however, was reduced, and observed as a reduction in male fertility and female fecundity. With time following exposure to severe stress, reproductive… (More)
