Evolutionary biology of starvation resistance: what we have learned from Drosophila

Journal of Evolutionary Biology

Aug 24, 2007

S Rion, Tadeusz J Kawecki

Abstract

Most animals face periods of food shortage and are thus expected to evolve adaptations enhancing starvation resistance (SR). Most of our knowledge of the genetic and physiological bases of those adaptations, their evolutionary correlates and trade-offs, and patterns of within- and among...read more

Microbial ecology, genetics and evolution

Microbes are microscopic organisms which may exist in a unicellular or colony form. Here is the latest research on their genetic makeup, their relationship with one another and the environment, and their evolution.

Genome Dynamics and Adaptation

Genome-scale tools are revolutionizing studies of evolution by providing complete determination of the genetic basis of adaptation. Discover the latest research on Genome Dynamics and Adaptation here.
