Abstract

We report data that continue the studies of Dobzhansky and others on the frequencies of third-chromosome inversions in natural populations of Drosophila pseudoobscura in North America. The common gene arrangements continue to be present in frequencies similar to those described four decades ago, and the broad geographic patterns also remain unchanged. There is only one pronounced trend over time: the increase in frequency of the Tree Line inversion in Pacific coast populations.
