Data from: Ejaculate sperm number compensation in stalk-eyed flies carrying a selfish meiotic drive element

Lara C. Meade, Deidre Dinneen, Ridhima Kad, Dominic Lynch, Kevin Fowler & Andrew Pomiankowski
Meiotic drive genes cause the degeneration of non-carrier sperm to bias transmission in their favour. Males carrying meiotic drive are expected to suffer reduced fertility due to the loss of sperm and associated harmful side-effects of the mechanisms causing segregation distortion. However, sexual selection should promote adaptive compensation to overcome these deleterious effects. We investigate this using SR, an X-linked meiotic drive system in the stalk-eyed fly, Teleopsis dalmanni. Despite sperm destruction caused by drive,...
