The effects of inbreeding on the phenotypic variance within populations were measured in a set of 30 bottlenecked lines derived from a single source population of Drosophila melanogaster. Inbred lines had significant variance among lines in the amount of phenotypic variance within lines, for thorax length, and sternopleural bristle scores. When significance levels were corrected on an experimentwide basis, no line had significant increases in phenotypic variance for sternopleural bristle counts… CONTINUE READING
