The genes for mahogany eyes and ebony body are approximately 30 map units apart on chromosome III in Drosophilia. The inheritance pattern for both mahogany eyes and ebony body phenotypes is recessive. Assume that a mahogany-eyed female was mated to an ebony-bodied male and that the resulting F1 phenotypically wild-type females were mated to mahogany, ebony males. Of 2,000 offspring, what would be the expected phenotypes, and in what numbers would they be expected?
