In 1939, Berg defended dissertation on “Differences between Natural and Laboratory Strains of Drosophila melanogaster: A Hypothesis on Genetic Correlations.” Immediately after that, she moved to Moscow and began her doctorate studies at the Severtsov Institute of Evolutionary Morphology of Animals, then headed by Schmalhausen. In the ﬁrst years of her scientiﬁc work, Berg per- formed a series of studies on estimation of mutation rates in D. melanogaster chromosomes, showing a spe- cial role of the sex chromosome in this process. The evolution of mechanisms underlying sexual dimor- phism was also studied. Raisa Berg attempted to corre- late cytogenetics mechanisms, realization of hereditary traits in development, and the process of evolution. In the 1930s–1940s, Berg studied factors of evolution of the insect wing. The following series of studies was devoted to natural
