Recent Advances and Future Directions in Tephritid Population Genetics
Knowledge of population structure is a cornerstone for complete understanding of tephritid biology. Both evolutionary issues, such as host specialization and speciation, and management of pest species rely on a working knowledge of fly population genetics. Substantial data have been accumulated in recent years for some species, but much work remains to be completed. It is my intent to review these recent data, focus on topics requiring further research, and point out how new technical approaches may facilitate this research.
