The advantage enjoyed by second males suggests that sperm from some males are more likely to fertilize eggs, regardless of their numerical representation. High quality paired-end reads from the Panama City and Maine libraries were aligned to the genome. Parker argues that these two lines of adaptations will be in some kind of evolutionary balance. Thus, the Wolbachia dosage within the germline component of a cyst may be important in determining the modification of sperm. The number of vials required will depend on the number of experimental male types under study and the number of individuals estimated to be necessary to detect differences Table 1. Protocol Small-scale experiments should be performed to become familiar with the whole procedure. Arch Sex Behav ;34 4:
Cytoplasmic Incompatibility and Sperm Cyst Infection in Different Drosophila-Wolbachia Associations
Increased density does not increase remating frequency in laboratory populations of Drosophila melanogaster. Cambridge University Press; Patterns of microsatellite variability among X chromosomes and autosomes indicate a high frequency of beneficial mutations in non-African D. In testes that harbored strains other than w Ri, immature infected cysts were very rarely detected.

Assessing Differences in Sperm Competitive Ability in Drosophila
Thus, we are limited in our confidence to speculate on the differences between these two species in latitudinal differentiation. Evol Human Behav ;22 5: Gene flow and the geographical distribution of a molecular polymorphism in Drosophila pseudoobscura. Representative Results Table 2 summarizes some salient features of two offense experiments Assays 1 and 2 in which D. Evolution of multiple kinds of female sperm-storage organs in Drosophila.
There are two mechanisms that may lead to differential mating success: Male seminal fluid proteins are essential for sperm storage in Drosophila melanogaster. Female flies that have given rise to no or very limited progeny e. Yet, it has become apparent that in other species where there are no apparent direct benefits, females are actively soliciting and seeking copulations with multiple males, suggesting indirect benefits to multiple mating. Random mixing in two species of Drosophila. Females may also receive defensive substances from males during insemination, e.
