Data from: Juvenile experience with male cues triggers cryptic choice mechanisms in adult female redback spiders

Maydianne C.B. Andrade, Aiswarya Baskaran, Maria Daniela Biaggio & Maria Modanu
Female choice may be linked to population density if expected encounter rates with potential mates affects choosiness (energy and risk engaged to express mate preferences). Choosiness should covary with male availability, which could be assessed using social cues available during development. We tested whether exposure of juvenile females to cues of male density affected mechanisms of choosiness of adult Latrodectus hasselti spiders in two experiments simulating natural contexts. Juvenile females were exposed to (1) volatile...
