Data from: Early reproductive success in Drosophila males is dependent on maturity of the accessory gland

Hanna Ruhmann, Kristina U. Wensing, Nicole Neuhalfen, Jan-Hendrick Specker & Claudia Fricke
In a number of insect taxa, male sexual maturity is not always directly attained at adult eclosion. Sexual maturity is often defined behaviorally as mating success, or physiologically as the point when gametes are produced. Here, we show that the sexual maturation process in males is more complex than previously described and that a measure of maturity also needs to include post-mating traits. In many species mating success is tightly linked with size of the...
