In order to study P element dynamics in natural populations of Drosophila melanogaster, 126 isofemale lines were examined from seven of the southernmost islands of Japan (the Sakishima Islands) and from Taiwan. Gonadal dysgenesis (GD) tests showed large divergences in the P-M phenotypes (P inducing and P repressing abilities) between the island populations. The P-M characteristics of each population, however, had not greatly changed in the past 15 years. Their genomic P element profiles are highly similar, consisting mostly of full-size P and of KP elements. We found no clear relationship between phenotype and genomic P element composition.
