Seven New Loci Associated with Age-Related Macular Degeneration
TLDR
A collaborative genome-wide association study, including >17,100 advanced AMD cases and >60,000 controls of European and Asian ancestry, identifies 19 loci associated at P < 5 × 10−8, which show enrichment for genes involved in the regulation of complement activity, lipid metabolism, extracellular matrix remodeling and angiogenesis.

Acoustically Orienting Parasitoids: Fly Phonotaxis to Cricket Song
  • W. Cade

  • 26 December 1975
TLDR
Larviparous female tachinid flies are attracted to taped cricket songs and probably influence male reproductive behavior and sexual competition in these acoustically orienting parasitoids. Expand
Phenotypic variation in the mating preferences of female field crickets, Gryllus integer
TLDR
The results suggest that selection can act on female preference functions in field crickets, and that direct selection on one preference function can result in indirect selection on other preference functions. Expand
QUANTITATIVE GENETICS OF SEXUAL SELECTION IN THE FIELD CRICKET, GRYLLUS INTEGER

  • 1 June 1999
TLDR
It is shown that female Texas field crickets, Gryllus integer, have heritable genetic variation for the male calling song stimulus level that produces the greatest phonotactic response. Expand
Fine-scale temperature effects on cricket calling song
TLDR
A repeated-measures design was used to assess the effects of temperature on the structure of cricket calling song in the trilling field cricket Gryllus integer. Expand
Sexual selection and speciation in field crickets.

  • 19 December 2000
TLDR
Data on male pulse rates and female phonotactic responses to pulse rates for the field cricket Gryllus texensis suggests that divergent sexual selection may have caused speciation between these taxa. Expand
Sex, death, and genetic variation: natural and sexual selection on cricket song
TLDR
Using playbacks of field–cricket calling song in the natural habitat, it is shown that both female crickets and female parasitoid flies prefer male calling song with average numbers of pulses per trill, whereas flies exert disruptive natural selection on male song. Expand
Alternative male strategies: genetic differences in crickets.
  • W. Cade
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Science
  • 1 May 1981
Male field crickets, Gryllus integer, call and attract mates, or they silently intercept females attracted to calling males. Selection experiments demonstrate that the duration of nightly calling hasExpand
Male mating success, calling and searching behaviour at high and low densities in the field cricket, Gryllus integer
TLDR
D density-dependent fluctuations in male mating success and maintenance of phenotypic and genetic variation in Gryllus integer field crickets are discussed in terms of density- dependent fluctuations in males' body weight and mating frequency. Expand
