Data from: The role of species-specific sensory cues in male responses to mating rivals in Drosophila melanogaster fruitflies

Amanda Bretman, James Rouse, James D. Westmancoat & Tracey Chapman
Complex sets of cues can be important in recognising and responding to conspecific mating competitors and avoiding potentially costly heterospecific competitive interactions. Within Drosophila. melanogaster, males can detect sensory inputs from conspecifics to assess the level of competition. They respond to rivals by significantly extending mating duration and gain significant fitness benefits from doing so. Here, we tested the idea that the multiple sensory cues used by D. melanogaster males to detect conspecifics also function...
