Costly mating delays drive female ornamentation in a capital breeder full dataset

Juhani Hopkins, Gautier Baudry, Topi K. Lehtonen & Arja Kaitala
The data is related to experiments on glow-worms (L. noctiluca), where we studied the effect of stressing and mating delays on signalling effort.We address how fecundity might be traded off with mate attraction and other aspects of reproduction in females remains poorly understood. We investigated these allocation trade-offs using the common glow-worm (Lampyris noctiluca), a lampyrid beetle in which flightless, sedentary females only use resources gathered during the larval stage to attract flying males by...
