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. ...
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) ...
Copulation behaviour of Glossina pallidipes (Diptera: Muscidae) outside and inside the female, with a discussion of genitalic evolution
(Bulletin of Entomological Research (2007) 97, 1–18, 2007-04-26)
If species-specific male genitalia are courtship devices under sexual selection by cryptic female choice, then species-specific aspects of the morphology and behaviour of male genitalia should often function to stimulate ...
