    • Abstract


      Studies on the inheritance of resistance to malathion in an originally field collected malathion-resistant strain ofT. castaneum by making genetic crosses between the resistant and a susceptible strain revealed that resistance in this strain is controlled by an autosomally inherited single major gene which is incompletely dominant.
