Effect of energy drinks’ (natural and synthetic) on ovariole number and body size of d.melanogaster

Dietary composition is one of the primary experimental factors that affects many aspects of animal physiology including life span, general health, and reproductive potential hence present study has been undertaken in Drosophila melanogaster to study effect of synthetic and natural energy drink based media on ovariole number and wing length, In the present study the flies of Drosophila melanogaster reared in synthetic and natural energy drink based media were used the results showed that the flies fed on natural energy drink had consumed significantly greater quantity of food compared to flies fed on synthetic energy drinks as well as normal media, It was also noticed that the ovariole number and wing length were significantly greater in flies reared in natural energy drinks than those flies reared in natural energy drinks than those flies reared in synthetic and normal, Thus these studies suggests that the dietary composition of natural energy drinks had increased female fitness in Drosophila melanogaster
