The grasshopper Eyprepocnemis plorans is polymorphic for both a B chromosome and a heterochromatic segment of chromatin on the smallest autosome. Females transmit these to their offspring more frequently after copulating with a male from a population without Bs than after copulating with a male from their own population. Paternity analyses using the heterochromatic segment as a marker showed that the effect of male on female transmission does not depend on fertilization because it occurs even… CONTINUE READING
