 en When population and evolutionary genetics met behaviour
Costa, Rodolfo & Stanewsky, Ralf

Abstract

In this review, we analyse the impact of a population and evolutionary genetics approach on the study of insect behaviour. Our attention is focused on the model organism Drosophila melanogaster check for this species in other resources and several other insect species. In particular, we explore the relationship between rhythmic behaviours and the molecular evolution of clock and ion channel genes.
