Data from: Sexual conflict and ecology: species composition and male density interact to reduce male mating harassment and increase female survival

Miguel Gomez, Hanna Mercedes Bensch, Erik I. Svensson & Miguel A. Gomez-Llano
Sexual conflict is a pervasive evolutionary force that can reduce female fitness. Experimental evolution studies in the laboratory might overestimate the importance of sexual conflict since the ecological conditions in such settings typically include only a single species. Here, we experimentally manipulated conspecific male density (high or low) and species composition (sympatric or allopatric) to investigate how ecological conditions affect female survival in a sexually dimorphic insect, the banded demoiselle (Calopteryx splendens). Female survival was...
