Support for this hypothesis is limited to male adaptations that function to enhance male control over females in copulation (e.g. structures that function to clasp females). Evidence for morphological adaptation in females is critical to the hypothesis, yet lacking. Here, we present the first experimental evidence demonstrating that female abdominal… CONTINUE READING
