A high and low selection line were formed by individual selection of females on the basis of their recombination. In the high line, recombination between Gl and Sb was increased from 14.8 percent to about 30 percent in twelve generations, when a plateau was apparently reached. Realized heritability was 0.12. The absence of a response to selection for low recombination is attributed mainly to genetic random drift, and partially to directional dominance and directional gene frequencies. Natural selection was found to act against increases of recombination above a level of about twenty percent in the measured interval. High recombination tended to be recessive to low recombination. In both selected lines and unselected stocks, intervals proximal to the centromere tended to have a higher recombination variance than distal intervals.
