An experimental test of the role of male mating history on paternal effects in the livebearer fish, Gambusia holbrooki

Upama Aich, Michael Jennions & Rebecca Fox
We experimentally tested if differences in the mating history of old males affects their offsprings’ performance in the mosquitofish, Gambusia holbrooki. Upon maturation, males were housed for the duration of a natural field breeding season (23 weeks) either with mating access to females (‘lifetime mating’) or with visual but no physical access to females (‘no mating’).
