Data from: Sperm longevity and salinity – the overlooked importance of spawning environment for alternative reproductive tactics

Ola Svensson, Charlotta Kvarnemo & Leon Green
Studies on adaptive responses to sperm competition have focused on mating modes and mating roles. The main mating modes studied are external and internal fertilization and spermcasting. The focus of male mating roles assumes one advantageous ‘bourgeois’ role and another disadvantageous ‘parasitic’ role regarding the probability of fertilization. However, sperm longevity between teleost fishes spawning in hypoosmotic freshwater and species spawning in hyperosmotic saltwater differs markedly. We argue that this can have major impacts on...
