Data from: Sexual signals reveal males’ oxidative stress defenses: testing the hypothesis in an invertebrate

Norma Martínez-Lendech, Maria J. Golab, Marcela Osorio-Beristain & Jorge Contreras-Garduño
1.The hypothesis that sexual traits reveal the oxidative stress resistance of their bearers has been widely tested in vertebrates but remains unexplored in invertebrates. Here, Hetaerina americana was used to test whether oxidative stress defenses are advertised by male wing spot size and color (a male sexual trait). To this end we asked (1) whether oxidative stress reduced survival, (2) whether wing spot size revealed males’ antioxidant defenses, and (3) how wing spot size and...
