    • Abstract


      Biometric data on bristle numbers for two segments and wing length of 936 femaleDrosophila melanogaster derived from a wild stock are presented. Heritabilities were about 0.4. The genetic correlation between the two bristle numbers was +.91, the environmental correlation insignificant. The genetic correlations between wing length and the bristle numbers were +39 and +.17, the environmental correlations again insignificant.
