Data from: The maintenance of sperm variability: context-dependent selection on sperm morphology in a broadcast spawning invertebrate

Darren W. Johnson, Keyne Monro & Dustin J. Marshall
Why are sperm so variable despite having a singular, critical function and an intimate relationship with fitness? A key to understanding the evolution of sperm morphology is identifying which traits enable sperm to be successful fertilizers. Several sperm traits (e.g. tail length, overall size) are implicated in sperm performance, but the benefits of these traits are likely to be highly context-dependent. Here, we examined phenotypic selection on sperm morphology of a broadcast spawning tube worm...
