Are females in good condition better able to cope with costly males?
The costs of mating for a female might depend on both her phenotype and that of her mate. Sexually antagonistic male traits that negatively affect females are often condition dependent, so a male's rearing environment can affect the costs he imposes on his mate. Likewise, a female's ability to resist male-imposed costs might be condition dependent. We experimentally manipulated female and male body conditions in the seed beetle Callosobruchus maculatus by rearing larvae on a good or poor...[Show more]
