The effect of transient nutritional stress (sucrose culture medium) on female mate preference was investigated in the stalk-eyed fly Cyrtodiopsis dalmanni. Two experimental treatments were run in parallel. In the first, female preference was initially tested on corn (standard medium) and subsequently on sucrose (novel medium). In the second, female preference was tested in the reverse order: sucrose then corn. Females fed on corn had stronger preferences for large-eyespan males than females fed… CONTINUE READING
