The relations between the three major Drosophila melanogaster chromosomes and individual differences in geotaxis are assayed in populations selected for positive and negative geotaxis and in an unselected foundation population. The major changes which occur with selection and the differential roles in geotaxis of the three large chromosomes are described.
