Physiological effects of heat stress on Hawaiian picture-wing Drosophila: Genome-wide expression patterns and stress-related traits [pdf]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
Two Hawaiian picture-wing Drosophila differ in their temperature tolerances with the ecologically rare species, D. silvestris, showing reduced survival, reduced sperm mobility and greater gene expression changes at high temperatures compared to the common D. sproati. Thus the rare species may have reduced capacity to adapt to future climate changes.
