Data from: Benefits of polyandry: molecular evidence from field-caught dung beetles

Erin L. McCullough, Bruno A. Buzatto & Leigh W. Simmons
When females mate with multiple males, they set the stage for post-copulatory sexual selection via sperm competition and/or cryptic female choice. Surprisingly little is known about the rates of multiple mating by females in the wild, despite the importance of this information in understanding the potential for post-copulatory sexual selection to drive the evolution of reproductive behavior, morphology, and physiology. Dung beetles in the genus Onthophagus have become a laboratory model for studying pre- and...
