Adult responses to larval population size in the almond moth, Cadra cautella

, : Adult responses to larval population size in the almond moth, Cadra cautella. Ethology6: 1, 39-46

Juvenile population size may affect the potential for future mating opportunities and therefore potentially sperm competition; this may favour ontogenetic adjustments in sperm production. Theory predicts that males should optimize their ejaculatory investment in accordance with the risk of sperm competition. Evidence for these theories is typically revealed in males of highly polyandrous species.
