What information led scientists to the conclusion that foraging behavior in Drosophila larvae is mainly due to genetics?

Both rover and sitter larvae have the same alleles at the for gene locus.

  

Roving is favored when population density is high and sitting is energetically favored when population density is low.

  

In breeding experiments rovers tended to produce rovers and sitters tended to produce sitters.

  

In natural populations, rovers mate with other rovers and sitters tend to mate with other sitters.
