Data from: Male competition and the evolution of mating and life history traits in experimental populations of Aedes aegypti

Alima Qureshi, Andrew Aldersley, Brian Hollis, Alongkot Ponlawat & Lauren J. Cator
Aedes aegypti is an important disease vector and a major target of reproductive control efforts. We manipulated the opportunity for sexual selection in populations of Ae. aegypti by controlling the number of males competing for a single female. Populations exposed to higher levels of male competition rapidly evolved higher male competitive mating success relative to populations evolved in the absence of competition, with an evolutionary response visible after only five generations. We also detected correlated...
