Many species experience reproductive interference defined as interspecific mating interactions that reduce the fitness of individuals in at least one of the species. We examined reproductive interference among three cryptic amphipod species that co-occur in the vegetated zone of lakes. Because these animals form precopulatory pairs and males commonly have indiscriminant mating behavior, we predicted that (1) there would be interspecific pairing, (2) interspecific pairing would be more common… CONTINUE READING
