Resistance of species of the Drosophila melanogaster subgroup to environmental extremes



Resistance of species of the Drosophila melanogaster subgroup to environmental extremes



Australian Journal of Zoology 283: 413-421



Resistance to the extreme stresses of high temperature-desiccation and low temperature were compared among six species of the melanogaster species subgroup of Drosophila flies. D. melanogaster was the most resistant to all stresses. The cosmopolitan species, D. melanogaster and D. simulans, were more resistant to cold stresses than the four endemic species, D. mauritiana, D. teissieri, D. yakuba and D. erecta.
