Data from: Impact of sexually antagonistic genital morphologies on female reproduction and wild population demography

Yasuoki Takami, Tomohiko Fukuhara, Jun Yokoyama & Masakado Kawata
Sexual conflict is a strong driver of evolution. The evolutionary outcomes of sexual conflict can, in turn, influence ecological processes within populations, e.g., demography. However, evidence for the latter hypothesis is scarce, especially in the wild. Here, we show that sexual conflict is associated with demographic processes determining population size in the ground beetle Carabus insulicola with elaborate male and female genitalia, based on individual- and population-level analyses. We found that sexually antagonistic selection can...
