Figure 7. Sexual dimorphism detectable within individual wild type
strains of Drosophila melanogaster. A. Relative warp
analysis of a thin plate spline comparison of landmarks averages of 55 male
and 55 female wings of Porch 88 wild type Drosophila melanogaster.
The major difference between the male and female wings is seen to be a small
dilation of the distal two-thirds of the wing blade in the male compared to the
female. Similar relative warp plots were obtained for wild type strains
B. Canton S, and C.
U. Tenn. Ag. A similar difference is seen
in D. Drosophila immigrans.
However, the major difference is not seen
in E. Drosophila virilis.
