Asymmetrical costs of sexual conflict in the seaweed fly, Coelopa frigida

, : Asymmetrical costs of sexual conflict in the seaweed fly, Coelopa frigida. Ecological Entomology: 3, 380-384

Sexual conflict can play an important role in the evolution of animal life-history characteristics, including lifespan. Seaweed flies show an increase in mortality rates when exposed to brown algae. The seaweed stimulates females to oviposit and males to mount females. Females typically respond to male mounts by performing a violent rejection response. Here the contribution of sexual conflict to the increase in mortality seen in the presence of seaweed was determined.
