Data from: Experimental evidence for accelerated adaptation to desiccation through sexual selection on males

Aline Gibson Vega, Jason Kennington, Joseph Tomkins & Robert Dugand
The impact of sexual selection on the adaptive process remains unclear. On the one hand, sexual selection might hinder adaptation by favouring costly traits and preferences that reduce nonsexual fitness. On the other hand, condition dependence of success in sexual selection may accelerate adaptation. Here, we used replicate populations of Drosophila melanogaster to artificially select on male desiccation resistance while manipulating the opportunity for precopulatory sexual selection in a factorial design. Following five generations of...
