The Effect of Inbreeding on Competitive Male-Mating Ability in DROSOPHILA MELANOGASTER.

Abstract

The effect of full-sib inbreeding on competitive male-mating ability (CImale symbol) in Drosophila melanogaster was investigated in two experiments. In the first, five inbred lines (with reserves) were assessed up to 18 generations. Linear inbreeding depression, of 5.9% per 10% increase in homozygosity, was observed. In a second experiment, 21 inbred lines… (More)
