In Drosophila, sperm length and the length of the females' primary sperm-storage organ have rapidly coevolved through post-copulatory sexual selection. This pattern is evident even among geographic populations of Drosophila mojavensis. To understand better these traits of potential importance for speciation, we performed quantitative genetic analysis of both seminal receptacle length and sperm length in two divergent populations. Parental strains, F1, F1 reciprocal (F1r), F2, F2r, backcross and… CONTINUE READING
