The population genetics of parthenogenetic strains of Drosophila mercatorum

  title={The population genetics of parthenogenetic strains of Drosophila mercatorum},
  author={Alan R. Templeton and Edward D. Rothman},
  journal={Theoretical and Applied Genetics},
A one locus model has been developed to describe parthenogenetic populations restoring diploidy by central fusion, terminal fusion and gamete duplication. It was found that in the absence of selection all populations become homozygous. With selection, however, it is possible to maintain heterozygotes and homozygotes. The conditions required to yield such an equilibrium are a function of (1) the proportions of the various diploid restoring mechanisms (2) linkage to the kinetochore and (3) the… CONTINUE READING
