1. This paper describes experiments on a strain ofDrosophila melanogaster which long-continued selection failed to make homozygous, and discusses a gene model put forward to explain its behaviour. 2. Under selection for long wings, the strain has remained for more than fifty generations in unstable genetic equilibrium, characterized by a phenotypic variance 50 % greater, and size 8% greater than in the unselected (control) stock. 3. When selection is relaxed or reversed, variance declines… CONTINUE READING
