Data from: Phenotypic plasticity in genitalia: baculum shape responds to sperm competition risk in house mice

Gonçalo Igreja André, Renee C. Firman & Leigh W. Simmons
Males are known to adjust their expenditure on testes growth and sperm production in response to sperm competition risk. Genital morphology can also contribute to competitive fertilisation success but whether male genital morphology can respond plastically to the sperm competition environment has received little attention. Here, we exposed male house mice to two different sperm competition environments during their sexual development and quantified phenotypic plasticity in baculum morphology. The sperm competition environment generated plasticity in...
