Effects of female behavior on wing display and courtship of male Drosophila simulans and Drosophila melanogaster.

Corrolations between female rejection behaviors and male wing display were calculated for both Drosophila simulans and Drosophila melanogaster intraspicific pair-matings. No significant correlations were found for D. melanogaster, but in D. simulans flicking by the female appeared to be associated with a shift in male wing display pattern resulting in… CONTINUE READING
