Interactions between genotype and sexual conflict environment influence transgenerational fitness in Drosophila melanogaster.

Abstract

Theory predicts that sexual conflict can fuel evolutionary change and generate substantial reproductive costs. This was tested here by measuring the fitness of focal individuals across multiple generations using an experimental framework. We manipulated sexual conflict through high versus low exposure of females to males across a four-generation pedigree of… (More)
