Artificial Selection on Male Longevity Influences Age-Dependent Reproductive Effort in the Black Field Cricket Teleogryllus commodus
Although the trade-off between reproductive effort and longevity is central to both sexual selection and evolutionary theories of aging, there has been little synthesis between these fields. Here, we selected directly on adult longevity of male field crickets Teleogryllus commodus and measured the correlated responses of age-dependent male reproductive effort, female lifetime fecundity, and several other life-history traits. Male longevity responded significantly to five generations of...[Show more]
