Abstract: Genetic structure and variability was investigated in several Hawaiian populations of D. simulans and D. immigrans. Genetic variability is at intermediate levels when compared to endemic species of Drosophila. Reasons why this variability is higher in island populations of D. simulans than in some continental populations are explored. For D. immigrans, Hawaiian and Korean populations are similar in variability, allelic content and gene frequencies. It is suggested that continual but rare recolonization events in cosmopolitan species can offer an evolutionary advantage over endemic species as it enables a new source of genetic variation.
