Life cycle variation and adaptation in jumping plant lice (Insecta: Hemiptera: Psylloidea): a global synthesis
While a phylogenetic signal can be identified within the data, the main drivers for life history adaptation are environmental temperatures and water availability, acting directly on the psyllids or mediated through their host plants.
Importance of multiple mating to female reproductive output in Diaphorina citri
It is demonstrated that, in Diaphorina citri Kuwayama, females require multiple matings over time to achieve high reproductive output, but oviposition is constrained by the presence of males.
The Effect of Single, Double, and Triple Matings on the Lifetime Fecundity of Callosobruchus analis and Callosobruchus maculatus (Coleoptera: Bruchidae)
It is suggested that the pattern of fecundity elevation associated with multiple mating in these species is primarily the result of oviposition stimulants delivered by males, rather than a nutritional “donation” brought about by the metabolism of ejaculates.
The evolution of polyandry: multiple mating and female fitness in insects
A meta-analysis of 122 experimental studies addressing the direct effects of multiple mating on female fitness in insects shows that females gain directly from multiple matings in terms of increased lifetime offspring production, and supports the existence of an intermediate optimal female mating rate.
1. The paper summarizes the published evidence on the relation between mating frequency and fecundity in insects. There is experimental evidence of varying quality for 63 species and non‐experimental
