The role of mitochondrial DNA for the evolution of life history traits remains debated. We examined mitonuclear effects on the activity of the multi-subunit complex of the electron transport chain (ETC) involved in oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) across lines of the seed beetle Acanthoscelides obtectus, selected for a short (E) or a long (L) life for more than >160 generations. We constructed and phenotyped mitonuclear introgression lines, which allowed us to assess the independent effects of...
