Chemical stimuli eliciting courtship by males in Drosophila melanogaster

Experientia 39(3): 333-335
Chemical stimuli eliciting courtship by males in Drosophila melanogaster
By progressive removal of various sense organs and testing for inter-male courtship in the absence or presence of females, it was demonstrated in the laboratory in South Africa that males of Drosophila melanogaster Mg. require close-range, probably contact, chemical stimuli for the initiation of courtship.
