Description
The purpose of this experiment was to test the effects of acid rain on several generations of living organisms. This researcher was interested in exploring whether mutations, found in an acid environment would also be observed if the offspring were removed from the acid environment into a neutral environment. Drosophila melanogaster were selected as subjects, due to their short life span, ease of use and similarity to human genetics. As insects inhabit the primary levels of the food chain, mutations observed on the Drosophila melanogaster would influence the rest of the chain.
