Eight Drosophila melanogaster strains, seven homozygous for AdhF alleles and one for an Adh-null mutant, were compared for ADH activity in males and adult mortality on ethanol-supplemented food. The strains differed considerably in these qualities. A positive correlation was found between ADH activity and LD50. The relevance of this finding is discussed in relation to the differential selection acting on Adh genotypes kept on ethanol-supplemented food.
