    • Abstract


      Six south Indian populations ofDrosophila nasuta nasuta were analysed for inversion polymorphism. A total of 28 inversions were recorded. Of these, 9 are entirely new gene arrangements reported here for the first time. Various facets of the polymorphic system of these 6 populations, namely, flexibility, heteroselection, non-random distribution and linkage disequilibrium are discussed.
