Rapid adaptation in fruit flies

New findings from the Penn School of Arts & Sciences biologists show that evolution, normally considered to be a gradual process, can occur in a matter of weeks in fruit flies in response to natural environmental change. Researchers studied populations of fruit flies in 10 enclosures on the Pennovation Works campus to make these exciting discoveries!
