CONCERNED: European drosophilists.
In a research on the evolutionary genetics of ageing, the Laboratoire
de genetique of the University of Louvain (F.A. LINTS) wishes to compare
the life history of wild-captured populations of Drosophila melanogaster
from different geographical origin (Europe-restricted).
For that purpose, we are looking for drosophilists who would accept
to collaborate by collecting, say, 100 flies and by sending them to us
immediately after capture.
Were you willing to collaborate, please contact us as soon as
possible. Send your coordinates, and the approximate date at which you
think you may be able to collect flies. Of course, we'll call you back
as soon as possible.
