Data from: Effects of ovarian fluid on sperm traits and its implications for cryptic female choice in zebrafish

Federica Poli, Simone Immler & Clelia Gasparini
In polyandrous mating systems, females maintain the opportunity to bias male fertilization success after mating in a process known as cryptic female choice. Mechanisms of cryptic female choice have been described both in internal and external fertilizers, and may affect fertilization processes at different stages before, during and after fertilization. While in internal fertilizers, females have substantial control over sperm storage and fertilization, in external fertilizers, female control is limited. A key factor proposed to...
