Intraspecific variation of Drosophila buzzatii larval breeding success on Opuntia: a yeast-plant-insect relationship


Entomologia Experimentalis et Applicata, 641: 87-95
Intraspecific variation of Drosophila buzzatii larval breeding success on Opuntia: a yeast-plant-insect relationship
Drosophila buzzatii normally breeds in decaying pockets of Opuntia cladodes, in which there is a complex interaction with the microbial flora, especially yeast species. Isofemale lines were used to estimate genetic variation among larvae reared on their natural feeding substrate.
