Biology Photo: Abnormal Pattern Formation in Fruitfly (Campbell Biology)

The photo shows an abnormal pattern formation in Drosophila (fruitfly). Mutations in homeotic genes cause abnormal placement of structures in an animal, such as the legs extending from the mutant fly’s head in place of antenna.

Date Published: February 21, 2007 Publisher: Public Library of Science Author(s): Sutirth Dey, Amitabh Joshi, Mark Rees. http://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0000233 Abstract: A large number of theoretical studies predict that the dynamics of spatially structured populations (metapopulations) can be altered by constant perturbations to local population size. However, these studies presume large metapopulations inhabiting noise-free, zero-extinction environments, and their … Continue reading
