Canton S strains maintained at constant and variable (controlled

We have maintained Canton S strains at 25deg C for many years and 
find that they are strongly affected by small (3 deg) changes in 
rearing temperature.  To see whether this "thermal fragility" 
reflects an adaptation to life at constant temperature, we would like 
to find --  and test -- other Canton S strains that have been 
maintained for long periods (>>one year) at constant temperatures (21 
degC to 28 degC) as well as for those that have been kept at variable 
but controlled temperatures for comparable periods.  If you have 
stocks of this type and would be interested in letting us test them, 
please contact me. Thanks.
