Pronounced within-individual plasticity in sperm morphometry across social environments

Immler, Simone; Pryke, Sarah; Birkhead, Tim R; Griffith, Simon C.

Description

Sperm morphometry (i.e., size and shape) and function are important determinants of male reproductive success and are thought to be under stabilizing selection. However, recent studies suggest that sperm morphometry can be a phenotypically plastic trait,
