Who might be interested in such investigations?
I am a medical doctor recently moved in UK from the former USSR where
simultaneously with my job as a physician I have been engaged in scientific
research in the field of population biology.
Our group of scientists was carring out investigations on mechanisms of
surviving of biological species when unfavourable factor leading to
destruction of individuals of the species occurs. One of the fields of
our investigations was Drosophila population ecology. Series of experiments
have been carried out by specialists in one of research institutions of
scientific centre in Novosibirsk, Russia aimed to investigate possibility
of regulation of reproduction rate. The preliminary results of the
experiments were very interesting. We could obtain predicted increase
of reproduction rate in experimental groups of insects in comparison with
control groups without an application of any physical or chemical stimulators.
The conditions in the experimental and control groups (structure, food, space,
temperature, etc.) were completely equal. Unfortunately, these investigations
like many others in the former Soviet Union have not been completed.
We are looking for scientists or scientific institutions that might be
interested in such investigations.
