Autosomal variation for male body size and sperm competition phenotypes is uncorrelated in Drosophila melanogaster.


Correlations between male body size and phenotypes impacting post-copulatory sexual selection are commonly observed during the manipulation of male body size by environmental rearing conditions. Here, we control for environmental influences and test for genetic correlations between natural variation in male body size and phenotypes affecting post-copulatory… (More)
