Genotype-by-environment interactions and adaptation to local temperature affect immunity and fecundity in Drosophila melanogaster

PLoS Pathogens

Abstract

Natural populations of most organisms harbor substantial genetic variation for resistance to infection. The continued existence of such variation is unexpected under simple evolutionary models that either posit direct and continuous natural selection on the immune system or an evolved l...read more
