Table 2 Comparison of frequency differences of the eleven putatively adaptive and the three intermediate TEs, between the locally two abutting slopes of EC (detailes in Table 1), with the TE frequency differences between the mesic and tropical climates in Australia and in North America in D. melanogaster populations [39]

From: Putative adaptive inter-slope divergence of transposon frequency in fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster) at “Evolution Canyon”, Mount Carmel, Israel
