Foraging strategies of Drosophila melanogaster: a chromosomal analysis

Behavior Genetics

May 1, 1980

M B Sokolowski

Abstract

Two larval foraging strategies in Drosophila melanogaster were identified, "rover" and "sitter." "Rovers" traverse a large area while feeding whereas "sitters" cover a small area. The difference between "rovers" and "sitters" was analyzed genetically by chromosomal substitutions between...read more

Gene-Environment Interaction & Behaviour

Gene-environment interaction is when two different genotypes respond to environmental variation in different ways.Genes and environment interact to form an individual's personality. Abnormal or extreme behaviour could thus be explained by hereditary factors in combination with poor environmental conditions.
