Genetics and Karyology of Drosophila Subobscura

Abstract

MODERN genetical theory is largely based on the study of Drosophila melanogaster, which has proved a useful guide to the genetics of other organisms. But there has been a tendency to regard this species as a standard, and any deviations from its genetical behaviour as exceptions.
