Association between feeding rate and parasitoid resistance in Drosophila melanogaster



Association between feeding rate and parasitoid resistance in Drosophila melanogaster



Evolution 53(4): 1302-1305



Replicate lines of D. melanogaster selected for increased resistance against Asobara tabida or Leptopilina boulardi were used to show that in both sets of selected lines, lower competitive ability is associated with reduced rates of larval feeding, as measured by the frequency of retractions of the cephalopharyngeal skeleton.
