Our knowledge of genetics comes primarily from discoveries made in laboratory species, especially Drosophila mslanogaster, and this is particularly true of quantitative genetics and animal breeding. The contributions of Drosophila research to these fields were reviewed at the 1st Congress by HAMMOND (1974) and previous reviews are referred to by him. It is worth restating the three major roles for laboratory animals in breeding research recognised by ROBERTSON (1959
