    The behaviors that surround copulation are characterized as sociosexual behaviors. These behaviors displayed by males that are directed at females may include allogrooming, wrestling, chasing, approach, and time spent together. The data supported the hypothesis that the duration of sociosexual...

    Abstract  Growing evidence indicates that females actively engage in polyandry either to avoid genetic incompatibility or to bias paternity in favor of genetically superior males. Despite empirical support for the intrinsic male quality hypothesis, the maintenance of variation in...

    Agroeca cuprea Menge, 1873 is recorded for the first time from Turkey. Characteristic features and photographs of copulatory organs are presented together with information on geographical distribution of the species.

    Formation of copulatory plugs by male animals is a common means of reducing competition with rival males. In mice, copulatory plugs are formed by the coagulation of seminal vesicle secretion (SVS), which is a very viscous and self-clotting fluid containing high concentration of proteins. In its...

  • Selfish genetic elements and sexual selection: their impact on male fertility. Tom Price; Nina Wedell // Genetica;Sep2008, Vol. 134 Issue 1, p99 

    Abstract  Females of many species mate with more than one male (polyandry), yet the adaptive significance of polyandry is poorly understood. One hypothesis to explain the widespread occurrence of multiple mating is that it may allow females to utilize post-copulatory mechanisms...

    The maternally inherited bacterium Wolbachia pipientis generates strong reproductive incompatibilities between uninfected females and infected males (cytoplasmic incompatibility), significantly reducing both female and male reproductive success. Such fitness costs are thought to place selective...

    Genitalia are among the fastest evolving morphological traits in arthropods. Among the many hypotheses aimed at explaining this observation, some explicitly or implicitly predict concomitant male and female changes of genital traits that interact during copulation (i.e., lock and key, sexual...

    The hypothesis that prolonged copulatory mate guarding coexists with last male sperm precedence was tested for the sugarcane rootstalk borer weevil, Diaprepes abbreviatus (L.) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae). Male D. abbreviatus showed a long copulatory guarding. Both males and females were less...

    In several animals, males produce substances that block the copulatory openings and ducts of females. We investigated variation in presence of 'mating plugs' (MPs) in the spider Philoponella tingens. We studied the frequency of MPs in the wild and MP deposition and permanence in isolated...

    A key for identification of 28 Pentatomomorpha in Neotropical distribution families is presented. Figures in dorsal view of some specimens for each family and the different features mentioned are shown. A synopsis of the main references for identification at the genus level in the Neotropic is...
