Resumen

SAAVEDRA, CARMEN C. R.; NAPP, MARLY; REGULY, MARIA LUIZA  y  VALENTE, VERA LUCIA S. Isoenzymatic polymorphisms in urban populations of Drosophila willistoni. Rev. chil. hist. nat. [online]. 2001, vol.74, n.1, pp. 47-53. ISSN 0716-078X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-078X2001000000010.

Natural populations of Drosophila willistoni collected both in urban sites and in the wild, as control, were analysed with respect to their isoenzyme polymorphisms in six loci of enzyme systems, through horizontal electrophoresis. The first pool of populations was collected and analysed during the years 1987 and 1988, and the other during 1992 and 1993, in comparable seasons. The level of enzymatic polymorphism first detected was smaller in comparison to that observed four years later, suggesting an increase of variability along the time elapsed since the first sampling of this species, in the city of Porto Alegre. Our findings are suggestive of an increasing adjustment of the species to this new environment

Palabras clave : Drosophila willistoni; urban populations; isoenzymes.
