By Sylwester Chyb

  • ''The Atlas of Drosophila Morphology presents a worthwhile, 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 miles 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 photographs of the entire 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 an extremely favorable version to enquire a plethora of organic difficulties. This e-book appears to be like remarkably beneficial not just for pro drosophilists yet is especially compatible for biologists with a modest historical past in fly genetics, who desire to use Drosophila as a version organism for his or her particular pursuits. the gorgeous images featured during this ebook, usually exhibiting side-by-side mutant flies and wild-type opposite numbers, will allow effortless identifications of the genetic phenotype, and upload to the price of this volume.'' - Professor Jules Hoffmann, collage of Strasbourg, France

Each image is assigned two values: a “P stage” from Bainbridge and Bownes (1981), and the percentage of completed pupal development.

Their pigmentation darkens progressively over the next few hours following emergence. Upon eclosion the fly wings are neatly folded and are gray in wild-type flies. In the next 30 min, the wings unfold. For the next 2 h, the wings remain fragile and are held at a slight angle away from the body.

Gonads are visible in side view, against a dark background and ideally with back-illumination. 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).
