All studies were done on the basis of sequence comparisons except those labeled

  • * indicating fine restriction map length polymorphism

  • ** SSCP and sequencing, respectively.

  • a Recombination rate × 10–8/bp/generation (see materials and methods).

  • b n, the number of D. melanogaster sequences under analysis.

  • c m, the number of D. simulans (s) and D. yakuba (y) sequences used in the analyses.

  • d Regions of high and low recombination are defined as those with recombination rates >1 × 10–8 and <1 × l0–8/bp/generation, respectively.
