Female remating, sperm competition and sexual selection in Drosophila.
Female remating is fundamental to evolutionary biology as it determines the pattern of sexual selection and sexual conflict. Remating in females is an important component of Drosophila mating systemsExpand

Influence of developmental temperature on cold shock and chill coma recovery in Drosophila ananassae: Acclimation and latitudinal variations among Indian populations
Abstract Exposure of various Drosophila species to mild increase or decrease in temperature has consistently been shown to result in increased resistance to subsequent temperature extremes. WeExpand

Female Remating in Drosophila ananassae: Bidirectional Selection for Remating Speed
In Drosophila ananassae, artificial selection was carried out for fast and slow remating speed for 10 generations. Response to selection resulted in rapid divergence in remating time in each of twoExpand

Male Remating in Drosophila ananassae: Evidence for Interstrain Variation in Remating Time and Shorter Duration of Copulation during Second Mating
Abstract In Drosophila ananassae, male remating was studied using ten mass culture stocks which were initiated from flies collected from different geographic localities. Male remating occurs at aExpand
