Mating behavior in mutant strains of Drosophila melanogaster at different population densities

Mating behavior in mutant strains of Drosophila melanogaster at different population densities The effects of mutations and genetic background on the mating activity of males and receptivity of females Drosophila melanogaster have been studied at different population densities. Population density, as well as its combinations with other factors, significantly affects mating behavior of D. melanogaster. There are two distinct trends in the effect of this factor on mating behavior: the maximum larval overpopulation may cause either a significant suppression of the behaviors studied or an increase in their expressivity. The mating behaviors of w a and cn mutants against a certain genetic background changed similarly in response to varying population density. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Genetics Springer Journals

Abstract

The effects of mutations and genetic background on the mating activity of males and receptivity of females Drosophila melanogaster have been studied at different population densities. Population density, as well as its combinations with other factors, significantly affects mating behavior of D. melanogaster. There are two distinct trends in the effect of this factor on mating behavior: the maximum larval overpopulation may cause either a significant suppression of the behaviors studied or an increase in their expressivity. The mating behaviors of w a and cn mutants against a certain genetic background changed similarly in response to varying population density.
