GODOY-HERRERA, RAÚL. The behavior of Drosophila larvae: their ethology, development, genetics and evolution. Rev. chil. hist. nat. [online]. 2001, vol.74, n.1, pp.55-64. ISSN 0716-078X.

This is a review about our contributions in ethology, development, genetics, and evolution of larval behavioral patterns of Drosophila in honor of the late Professor Doctor Danko Brncic Juricic. The developmental behavioral genetics of larval foraging and pupation of Drosophila are discussed. It is also emphasized the importance of research strategies lead to understand properly the relationships between genotype and behavior during development of the organisms. Finally, a comparison between phylogenetic relationships of six Drosophila species of the mesophragmatica group and their developmental patterns of larval behaviors is provided

Keywords : Drosophila larval behavior; ethology; evolution; genetics.
