Abstract

Based on 28 annuity curves of Drosophila melanogaster, the heritability of Gompertz mortality parameters was estimated; its value was 0.7-0.8. Mortality parameter /?0 was shown to be inversely proportional to the square of a. Some data indicate the monogenic control of interlinear differences in these parameters. A hypothesis on the localization of these genes on chromosome 2 is discussed.
