Data from: A competitive environment influences sperm production, but not testes tissue composition, in house mice

Renée C. Firman, Francisco Garcia-Gonzalez, Leigh W. Simmons & Goncalo I. Andre
Due to the physiological cost of sperm production, males are expected to be prudent in their expenditure and adjust their investment according to current social conditions. Strategic adjustments in sperm expenditure during development can be made via changes in testes size, sperm production rates, or testes tissue composition. Here, using house mice, we test the hypothesis that elevated sperm production is driven by a plastic response in the spatial organisation of the testes. We reared...
