Geography

This table is compiled from the data published in "The Genetics and Biology of Drosophila" Volume 3a, edited by M. Ashburner, H. L. Carson, and J. N. Thompson, Jr. 1981. We would like it to be as up-to-date and informative as possible. If you have any changes or additions, please send us an e-mail.

If you would like to search specific geographical locations for Drosophila species, a web site already exists with this feature: Visit the TaxoDros geographical search page.

We would like to thank Karen Boerup for typing all of this information into an Excel spreadsheet.
