      A genetic linkage map was constructed from an intraspecific cross of the Colorado potato beetle, Leptinotarsa decemlineata. This is an initial step toward mapping the loci that underlie important phenotypes associated with insect adaptation to an agroecosystem. The map was made with AFLP and 10 anonymous codominant markers segregating among 74 backcross (BC1) individuals.

An Investigation of Evolution in Chrysomelid Beetles of the Genus Leptinotarsa. By WILLIAM LAWRENCE TOWER. Washington, D. C., Carnegie Institution. It has been an obvious criticism of many of the recent experimental and statistical in-vestigations of matters connected with evolu-tion that they were entirely too narrow in their scope.

Abstract. The Colorado potato beetle, Leptinotarsa decemlineata (Say), is an American insect that belongs to the family Chrysomelidae (Coleoptera).

The species has been described by Say ().
