Selection for geotaxis in Drosophila melanogaster: heritability, degree of dominance, and correlated responses to selection

Behavior Genetics

PMID: 814890

Abstract

Selection for geotaxis was carried out with flies from a natural population of Drosophila melanogaster; geotactic behavior was measured by means of a Hirsch classification maze. The population was initally almost neutral to gravity, and it responded to both positive (downward) and negat...read more
