Dense seasonal sampling of an orchard population uncovers population turnover, adaptive tracking, and structure in multiple Drosophila species

Alyssa Bangerter
Organisms require genetic variation in order to evolve, and balancing selection is one way by which genetic variation is maintained in genomes. Adaptation to temporally varying selection is a mechanism of balancing selection that is not well characterized in natural populations. In my dissertation, I utilize the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster, which adapts to seasonally varying selection, to better understand balancing selection through adaptation to temporally varying selection. In Chapter 1, I utilize frequent sampling...
