Abstract: Abstract Quantitative trait loci (QTL) for thermotolerance were previously identified for adult flies in several mapping populations of Drosophila melanogaster Meigen (Diptera: Drosophilidae) in the laboratory. However, laboratory assays may not necessarily reflect the performance under heat stress in the field. For instance, do the heat‐resistance QTL regions in the field match the QTL for thermotolerance in laboratory studies? To address this and related questions we used a set of recombinant inbred lines (…
