Mate Selection and reproductive success in the Amazonian angelfish, Pterophyllum scalare (Osteichthyes: Cichlidae)
Mate selection and mating success in the Amazonian angelfish, Pterophyllum scalare were experimentally investigated in the laboratory. This species has a breeding system where male body size and substrate type could be ...
Effect of the symbiont Candidatus Erwinia dacicola on mating success of the olive fly Bactrocera oleae (Diptera: Tephritidae)
(Cambridge University Press, 2014-09)
Mutualistic bacterial endosymbionts provide many benefits to their insect hosts, but their role in mating has not been studied in the past. In this study, we examined copulatory success and mating latency as two parameters ...
