Effects of juvenile and adult diet on ageing and reproductive effort of male and female black field crickets, Teleogryllus commodus

Zajitschek, Felix; Hunt, John; Jennions, Michael; Hall, Matthew D.; Brooks, Rob


How and when resources are allocated to reproduction is expected to differ between the sexes, potentially generating differences in how males and females age. For this reason, acquisition of resources should be an important determinant of both age-dependent reproductive effort and of deteriorative ageing (i.e. senescence). We used black field crickets, Teleogryllus commodus, to test whether differences in diet quality of juveniles and adults determine sex-specific resource allocation to...[Show more]
