By Sylwester Chyb

  • ''The Atlas of Drosophila Morphology presents a useful, in addition to appealing, reference resource for all those that have to realize fly mutant phenotypes or who have to decipher the impenetrable jargon of fly anatomical names. a far wanted replace to the vintage works of Demerec and Lindsley & Grell … A needs to for any fly lab.'' - Ralph J. Greenspan, Kavli Institute for mind and brain, UCSD

    ''Chyb and Gompel have produced essential ebook for each Drosophilist. The Atlas of Drosophila Morphology provides crisp, high-definition colour pictures of all of the vintage morphological mutants a fly pusher must realize, displayed side-by-side with a wild kind fly.'' - Leslie B. Vosshall, HHMI-The Rockefeller University

    ''Drosophila is a really favorable version to enquire a plethora of organic difficulties. This ebook seems remarkably helpful not just for pro drosophilists yet is especially compatible for biologists with a modest history in fly genetics, who desire to use Drosophila as a version organism for his or her particular pursuits. the attractive images featured during this booklet, usually displaying side-by-side mutant flies and wild-type opposite numbers, will let effortless identifications of the genetic phenotype, and upload to the worth of this volume.'' - Professor Jules Hoffmann, collage of Strasbourg, France

Example text

Gonads are located on each side (black arrowheads), in the posterior third of the larva, slightly below the dorsal trachea. The males gonads are about five times bigger than the female gonads. They can be distinguished from the fat body in both sexes as they are translucent, while the fat body is milky. Pupae can be sexed on the last day of the pupal stage, when the cuticular structures become pigmented and the sex combs become visible on the ventral face of the male pupa (white arrowheads). 18 Wild-type Morphology THIRD INSTAR LARVA DORSAL THIRD INSTAR LARVA GONADS VENTRAL mouth hooks denticle belts trachea 1 mm PUPA DORSAL SEX COMBS IN PUPAE LATERAL Malpighian tubules 19 Atlas of Drosophila Morphology Pupal development The images on this plate are stills from a time-lapse movie of the pupal development of a wild-type fly from pupariation to adult eclosion (4 days at 25°C).
