Data supporting Fear of sex: Sexual conflict exposed as avoidance in a parthenogenetic invertebrate

Marcus Lee, Carlota Solano Udina & Lars-Anders Hansson
Males and females often have divergent evolutionary interests, generating sexual conflicts. This is particularly true in organisms that exhibit facultative sexuality, whereby females are capable of reproducing without fitness costs of mating. Here we provide the first documented evidence with quantitative tracking showing that sex interacts with social context to determine space-use of females, in a pattern resembling predator avoidance. To achieve this, we labeled Daphnia magna with fluorescent nanoparticles and utilized a 3-D tracking...
