Artificial divergent selection for the rate of homosexual copulation (defined as the proportion of homosexual mountings performed by a male in a period of 30 min) has been carried out for 2-3 generations in a population of Tribolium castaneum. A clear response was obtained in each of 4 replicates, corresponding to an overall realized heritability of 0.11 f 0.01. No significant correlated response to selection was observed for the average number of mountings performed by a male during the… CONTINUE READING
