Sex and tissue-specific evolution of developmental plasticity in Drosophila melanogaster

Didem Sarikaya
Developmental plasticity influences the size of adult tissues in insects. Tissues can have unique responses to environmental perturbation during development, however, the prevalence of within species evolution of tissue-specific developmental plasticity remains unclear. To address this, we studied the effects of temperature and nutrition on wing and femur size in D. melanogaster populations from a temperate and tropical region. Wings were more sensitive to temperature, while wings and femurs were equally responsive to nutrition in...
