Female Age Determines Remating Behavior in Wild Mexican Fruit Flies: Abraham et al.: Age Effects on Female Remating in A. ludens
(Springer/Plenum Publishers, 2016-05)
Male and female age are important factors that can influence mating and remating behavior. Females can discriminate against or prefer older males, but there have been relatively fewer studies on how female and male age ...
Inter and intraspecific variation in female remating propensity in the cactophilic sibling species Drosophila buzzatii and D. koepferae
Post-mating sexual selection by means of sperm competition or cryptic female choice occurs in species in which females remate before exhausting sperm supplied by previous mates. Thus, sperm competition is expected to be ...
The male ejaculate as inhibitor of female remating in two tephritid flies
(Pergamon-Elsevier Science Ltd, 2016-05)
The inhibition of female receptivity after copulation is usually related to the quality of the first mating. Males are able to modulate female receptivity through various mechanisms. Among these is the transfer of the ...
Differences in sperm storage and remating propensity between adult females of two morphotypes of the Anastrepha fraterculus (Diptera: Tephritidae) cryptic species complex
(Cambridge University Press, 2014-04)
The South American fruit fly, Anastrepha fraterculus, is a complex of cryptic species composed of at least seven morphotypes. Some of them, such as the Peruvian and Brazilian 1 morphotypes (which include Argentinean ...
Exposure of sterile Mediterranean fruit fly (Diptera: Tephritidae) males to ginger root oil reduces female remating.
(Journal of Applied Entomology, Hamburg, v. 137, p. 75-82, 2013., 2013)
Remating behaviour in Anastrepha fraterculus (Diptera: Tephritidae) females is affected by male juvenile hormone analog treatment but not by male sterilization
(Cambridge University Press, 2013-01)
The sterile insect technique (SIT) has been proposed as an area-wide method to control the South American fruit fly, Anastrepha fraterculus (Wiedemann). This technique requires sterilization, a procedure that affects, along ...
Experimental demonstration of possible cryptic female choice on male tsetse fly genitalia
(J. Insect Physiol. 2009 Nov; 55(11): 989-996, 2009)
A possible explanation for one of the most general trends in animal evolution – rapid divergent evolution of animal genitalia – is that male genitalia are used as courtship devices that influence cryptic female choice. ...
Female receptivity in Anastrepha ludens (Diptera: Tephritidae) is not modulated by male accessory gland products
In numerous insects, accessory gland products (AGPs) transferred from males to females during mating are responsible for female sexual inhibition, but these products can be affected by male condition. Here, we investigated ...
Female mediation of competitive fertilization success in Drosophila melanogaster
(National Academy Of Sciences, 2013-06)
How females store and use sperm after remating can generate postcopulatory sexual selection on male ejaculate traits. Variation in ejaculate performance traits generally is thought to be intrinsic to males but is likely ...
Experimental modifications imply a stimulatory function for male tsetse fly genitalia, supporting cryptic female choice theory
(THE AUTHORS. J. EVOL. BIOL. 22 (2009) 151 6-1525 JOURNAL COMPILATION, 2009)
One of the most sweeping of all patterns in morphological evolution is that animal genitalia tend to diverge more rapidly than do other structures. Abundant indirect evidence supports the cryptic female choice (CFC) ...
