Drosophila Melanogaster Reaction On Changes In Growing Conditions


A. P. Korzh

The ambient temperature of 31 ± 1o С and 8 ± 2o С is critical for drosophila and makes its development almost impossible. The food quality has the highest influence on insect development in optimum temperature condition. The transition of Drosophila from standard Spenser’s environment to fruit homogenate should be considered as stress at generation level because of the changes in fertility, survival rate, speed of development, and other characteristics.
