Mating Success and Survival Rate in a Population of Damselflies: Results at Variance with Theory?
Comparing lifetime mating success and mortality rates between males and females of Ischnura gemina, a sexually dimorphic, polygamous damselfly, found no significant differences between the sexes in variance in mating success, evenness of matingsuccess, mean number of matings per lifetime, or mean life span, suggesting that sexual dimorphism in I. gemina is not the result of sexual selection.
