Developmental temperature alters the thermal sensitivity of courtship activity and signal-preference relationships, but not mating rates

Mating behaviours are susceptible to novel or stressful thermal conditions, particularly for ectothermic organisms. One way to deal with changes in thermal conditions is to exhibit developmental plasticity, whereby the thermal sensitivity of mating behaviours depend on developmental conditions. We test how developmental temperature affects the thermal sensitivity of courtship behaviour and mating rates, as well as mating signal and preference coupling. We rear treehoppers under two temperature regimes and then test how a range...
