Abstract

Drosophila melanogaster can be artificially selected for increased resistance against parasitoid wasps that attack the larvae. Lines selected for greater resistance are poorer larval competitors under conditions of resource scarcity. Here we investigated the mechanistic basis of this ap...read more
