Studies of recent years have revealed a prodigious amount of variability in the gene arrangement in the chromosomes of several species of Drosophila. In natural populations of D. pseudooobscura the third chromosome is more variable than the rest; eighteen structural types, related to each other mostly as overlapping inversions, have been found in this chromosome alone.(1)
