Fitness components of a recently-established population of Zaprionus indianus (Diptera, Drosophilidae) in Brazil

Abstract: ABSTRACT. This study aimed to evaluate fitness components of Zaprionus indianus Gupta, 1970, a species recently introduced in Brazil and currently in process of colonization. Longevity, productivity, developmental speed and viability of flies sampled from a population from Mirassol (state of São Paulo, Brazil) were evaluated. Longevity was higher than that of some Indian populations and productivity was similar or higher than in other Drosophilidae. Time of development, one of the main fitness components for c… Show more

“…The mean duration of life cycle of Z. indianus at 25˚C recorded in our study (17.9 days with a range of 13.9 -23.2 days) was similar to that reported in Brazil by Setta and Carareto (2005) at the same experimental temperature, which was 18.5 day with a range of 15-25 day, also to that reported in Brazil too by Stein et al (2003) who recorded the mean life cycle as 16.78 day with a range of 13-23.50 day at the same temperature.…”
