Data from: Costs and benefits of lifetime exposure to mating rivals in male Drosophila melanogaster

Amanda Bretman, James D. Westmancoat, Matthew J. G. Gage & Tracey Chapman
Theory predicts that males should evolve mechanisms to assess competition and allocate resources accordingly. This requires phenotypic plasticity, to accurately match responses to the environment. Plastic responses in males to sexual competition are diverse and widespread. However, our ability to understand and predict how they evolve is limited because their benefits are rarely measured, and costs are, as yet, entirely unquantified. In the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster, males that anticipate strong competition for matings or...
