Abstract

UP to now students of Drosophila have regarded meiosis in the male as almost inaccessible, and have, therefore, confined themselves to the genetical investigation of essentially cytological problems. This is due to the belief that meiosis was completed in the pupa and that only the actual spermiogenesis takes place in the adult.
