Data from: Natural and sexual selection on cuticular hydrocarbons: a quantitative genetic analysis

Jacob D. Berson, Marlene Zuk & Leigh W. Simmons
While the reproductive benefits of sexual displays have been widely studied, we have relatively limited evidence of the fitness costs associated with most display traits. Insect cuticular hydrocarbon (CHC) profiles are sexually selected traits that also protect against desiccation. These two functions are thought to oppose each other, with investment in particular compounds believed to increase attractiveness at the expense of compounds that protect against water-loss. We investigated this potential trade-off in a quantitative genetic...
