No intra-locus sexual conflict over reproductive fitness or ageing in field crickets

Zajitschek, FelixWales; Hunt, John E; Zajitschek, Susanne R.K; Jennions, Michael; Brooks, Rob


Differences in the ways in which males and females maximize evolutionary fitness can lead to intra-locus sexual conflict in which genes delivering fitness benefits to one sex are costly when expressed in the other. Trade-offs between current reproductive effort and future reproduction and survival are fundamental to the evolutionary biology of ageing. This leads to the prediction that sex differences in the optimization of age-dependent reproductive effort may generate intra-locus sexual...[Show more]
