    • Abstract


      Spontaneous recombination in males ofDrosophila bipectinata was tested in five wild type laboratory stocks of different geographic origins by using sepia eye and black body colour double recessive mutant stock. The results indicate thatDrosophila bipectinata exhibits spontaneous male recombination. Further, recombination occurs at low rate and there is interstrain variation with respect to the rate of male crossing-over. This is the first report of spontaneous recombination in males ofDrosophila bipectinata.
