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


, : Intraspecific variation of Drosophila buzzatii larval breeding success on Opuntia: a yeast-plant-insect relationship. Entomologia Experimentalis et Applicata, 641: 87-95

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.

Thus, sperm competition is expected to be stronger when inseminated f...

The effect of environmentally activated variation of body size on male mating success in Drosophila buzzatii was examined.
