Data from: Quantitative genetics of female mate preferences in an ancestral and a novel environment

Matthieu Delcourt, Mark W. Blows & Howard D. Rundle
A female’s mate preference is a potentially complex function relating variation in multiple male phenotypes with her probability of accepting individual males as a mate. Estimating the quantitative genetic basis of preference functions within a population is empirically challenging yet key to understanding preference evolution. We employed a recently described approach that uses random-coefficient mixed models in the analysis of function-valued traits. Using a half-sibling breeding design in a laboratory-adapted Drosophila serrata population, we estimated...
