Abstract

Certain populations of the mosquitofish, Gambusia affinis, developed high levels of resistance to endrin and other cyclodiene insecticides as a result of inadvertent exposure to agricultural sprays. Genetic crossing studies show that endrin resistance is inherited as a single, autosomal, intermediate gene.
