Data from: Local population density and group composition influence signal-preference relationships in Enchenopa treehoppers (Hemiptera: Membracidae)

Kasey D. Fowler-Finn, Daniel C. Cruz & Rafael L. Rodriguez
Many animals exhibit social plasticity—changes in phenotype or behavior in response to experience with conspecifics—that change how evolutionary processes like sexual selection play out. Here, we asked whether social plasticity arising from variation in local population density in male advertisement signals and female mate preferences influences the form of sexual selection. We manipulated local density and determined whether this changed how the distribution of male signals overlapped with female preferences—i.e., the signal-mate preference relationship. We...
