Data from: Meiotic drive does not cause condition-dependent reduction of the sexual ornament in stalk-eyed flies

Sam Finnegan, Matteo Mondani, Kevin Fowler & Andrew Pomiankowski
Meiotic drive systems are associated with low frequency chromosomal inversions. These are expected to accumulate deleterious mutations due to reduced recombination and low effective population size. We test this prediction using the “sex-ratio” (SR) meiotic drive system of the Malaysian stalk-eyed fly Teleopsis dalmanni.SR is associated with a large inversion (or inversions) on the X chromosome. In particular, we study eyespan in males carrying the SR chromosome, as this trait is a highly exaggerated, sexually...
