Variation in mating propensity and fertility in isofemale strains of Drosophila ananassae

  title={Variation in mating propensity and fertility in isofemale strains of Drosophila ananassae},
  author={Bashisth Narayan Singh and Sandipan Chatterjee},
Mating propensity and fertility were studied in five laboratory strains of Drosophila ananassae which were established from single females collected from different geographical localities. The results show statistically significant variation among different isofemale lines with respect to mating propensity and fertility. The strains showing greater sexual activity produce more progeny. Thus, there is a positive correlation between mating activity and fertility in D. ananassae. The comparison of… CONTINUE READING
