Sounds different: inbreeding depression in sexually selected traits in the cricket Teleogryllus commodus

Drayton, Jean; Hunt, J.; Brooks, Rob; Jennions, Michael


If male sexual signalling is honest because it captures genetic variation in condition then traits that are important mate choice cues should be disproportionately affected by inbreeding relative to other traits. To test this, we investigated the effect of brother-sister mating on advertisement calling by male field crickets Teleogryllus commodus. We quantified the effect of one generation of inbreeding on nightly calling effort and five finer-scale aspects of call structure that have been...[Show more]
