Parallel adaptation to alcoholic fermentation in Zaprionus indianus and D. melanogaster populations


, : Parallel adaptation to alcoholic fermentation in Zaprionus indianus and D. melanogaster populations. Biologisches Zentralblatt. Januar-Februar-Marz; 1151: 34-45

Eight Indian geographical populations of Drosophila melanogaster and Z. indianus collected along 20 degrees N latitudinal range, revealed significant Adh clinal variation, i.e. 3% and 1% for 1 degrees latitude in D. melanogaster and Z. indianus, respectively. D. melanogaster populations could utilize 9.5-15.0% ethanol, while Z. indianus populations utilized 3.75-8.5% ethanol.
