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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Mating-induced transient inhibition of responses to sex pheromone in a male moth is not mediated by octopamine or serotonin
(Company Of Biologists, 2010-01)
In the male moth, Agrotis ipsilon, mating induces a transient inhibition of behavioural and central nervous responses to sex pheromone. Newly mated males are not attracted to sex pheromone, and the sensitivity of their ...
Females of a gift-giving spider do not trade sex for food gifts: a consequence of male deception?
(Biomed Central, 2017-05)
Polyandry is commonly maintained by direct benefits in gift-giving species, so females may remate as an adaptive foraging strategy. However, the assumption of a direct benefit fades in mating systems where male gift-giving ...
