Evolution of competitive ability in Drosophila by density-dependent natural selection

Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America

Jun 1, 1988

L D Mueller

PMID: 3132712

Abstract

The theory of density-dependent natural selection predicts that populations kept at extreme densities should evolve different competitive abilities for limited resources. These predictions have been tested with laboratory populations of Drosophila melanogaster. Six independent populatio...read more
