Data from: Age-dependent female responses to a male ejaculate signal alter demographic opportunities for selection

Claudia Fricke, Darrell Green, Walter E. Mills & Tracey Chapman
A central tenet of evolutionary explanations for ageing is that the strength of selection wanes with age. However, data on age-specific expression and benefits of sexually selected traits are lacking—particularly for traits subject to sexual conflict. We addressed this by using as a model the responses of Drosophila melanogaster females of different ages to receipt of sex peptide (SP), a seminal fluid protein transferred with sperm during mating. SP can mediate sexual conflict, benefitting males...
