A Database of Drosophila Genes & Genomes
Pick any species below to start, or use the main entry point. Once in the tree, click on any red text to navigate.
This page lists all species included in the Drosophilidae pages. The species A-Z listings are strictly those species within the Drosophila genus. All other species are listed under "Other Genus". All species within a genus are listed alphabetically by species name. Each species is linked to the page on which it can be found.
This tree is eternally under construction (as is evolution)! This tree is meant to be a qualitative guide, any quantitative information available can be seen below the tree diagrams. Unless otherwise noted below the tree diagrams, these references have been used to create the tree:
In cases where pictures were obtained from the internet, each image is linked to its parent directory, so click on an image to see where it came from. The Drosophila melanogaster image seen on the top banner was obtained from Alberts, B., D. Bray, A. Johnson, J. Lewis, M. Raff, K. Roberts, and P. Walter. "Figure 1-34." Essential Cell Biology: An Introduction to the Molecular Biology of the Cell. New York: New York Garland Publishing, 1998. p.29. In cases where the genetic history is not available, is unknown, or is unclear, all members of the phylum, group, subgroup, or complex are shown to emerge from a common node.
Another good site to look at is TaxoDros: The database of Taxonomy of Drosophilidae Compiled by Gerhard Baechli, especially for primary paper information.
