Data from: Resource limitation and responses to rivals in males of the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster

Janet S. Mason, Wayne G. Rostant & Tracey Chapman
Diet has a profound direct and indirect effect on reproductive success in both sexes. Variation in diet quality and quantity can significantly alter the capacity of females to lay eggs and of males to deliver courtship. Here, we tested the effect of dietary resource limitation on the ability of male Drosophila melanogaster to respond adaptively to rivals by extending their mating duration. Previous work carried out under ad libitum diet conditions showed that males exposed...
