Abstract

At the chromosomal level, heterochromatin differentiation resulting in karyotypic evolution provides a useful tool for cytotaxonomy of many groups of animals including the Diptera. Detectable differences in the amount and distribution of heterochromatin have been observed in several groups of...

Abstract

The P-M system of hybrid dysgenesis in Drosophila melanogaster was investigated on the basis of gonadal dysgenesis using 1590 strains from 28 natural populations in Japan, and 20 populations from Southeast Asia, the Pacific area and Africa. Strong P strains were found sporadically in several...

Abstract

In the mosquito Culex pipiens, over-production of esterases is a common insecticide resistance mechanism. Different alleles at the esterase A and B loci are known to occur in natural populations, as shown by enzyme electrophoresis and RFLP studies on the esterase B locus. The authors analysed the...

Abstract

A multifaceted approach was used to study the mechanisms of speciation in the A. scutellaris group of species. Genetic evidence is provided in support of the hybrid origin of species. It appears that hybridization has been an important factor in speciation, together with geographical isolation and...

Abstract

An account is given of the dispersal of Chrysomya megacephala from South-East Asia and Australasia to Africa, South America and Japan, as well as of the origins of the synanthropic form of the fly. The phylogeny of the C. megacephala group is discussed, and keys are presented to distinguish species ...

Abstract

The incidence of puparial diapause was examined in B. peregrina, B. javanica, B. nathani, B. septentrionalis, B. karnyi, B. koimani, B. timorensis, B. formosensis and B. invaria collected from various localities in East Asia and Oceanian islands. Colonies of B. septentrionalis, B. nathani and B....

Abstract

Alloenzyme relationships were compared with morphology, interspecific hybridization and distribution in 14 closely-related species in the Aedes scutellaris complex from south-east Asia, Australia and Oceania. The phylogeny generated by electrophoretic data was generally in agreement with...
