PMID: 973830

Abstract

Tested in Hirsch-Hadler mazes, Drosophila pseudoobscura is on the average geoneutral and photoneutral. Strongly geo- and photopositive and geo- and photonegative populations can be obtained by artificial selection, but upon relaxation of the selection they tend to relapse toward neutral...read more
