Data from: The direct effects of male-killer infection on fitness of ladybird hosts (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae)

Sherif Elnagdy, Mark Gardener, Lori-Jayne Lawson-Handley, L.-J. Lawson Handley & M. E. N. Majerus
Male-killing bacteria are common in insects, and are thought to persist in host populations primarily by indirect fitness benefits to infected females, while direct fitness effects are generally assumed to be neutral or deleterious. Here, we estimated the effect of male-killer infection on direct fitness (number of eggs laid, as a measure of fecundity, together with survival) and other life-history traits (development time and body size) in seven ladybird host/male-killer combinations. Effects of male-killers on...
