    Parasites and pathogens, including genomic parasites, are ubiquitous and key agents in shaping insect mating systems. Theoretically, parasites and parasitoids can maintain genetic variation in traits involved in mate choice, and selective pressures by parasitoids are known to cause marked shifts in the mating signals of several species. Recent research has focused on insect immune defence, and Author: Boris Baer. Insects display a staggering diversity of mating and social behaviours. Studying these systems provides insights into a wide range of evolutionary and behavioural questions, such as the evolution of sex, sexual selection, sexual conflict, and parental care.5/5(1).

    Introduction. In Darwin introduced the “sexual selection” concept in The Descent of Man, and Selection in Relation to Sex, because many conspicuous traits, such as loud calls, gaudy colors, and attention-catching movements, could not be well explained by natural ing that many of these traits are associated with competition for mates or mating opportunities, Darwin. D. Effect of exaggerated leg length on male reproductive fitness in M. longipes Post-mating competition is widespread in insects [], including water striders [,], and can strongly alter Author: Leigh W. Simmons.

    The first observations of multiple paternity in insects were those of Nonidez () who noted that, when female Drosophila melanogaster mated with two males in close succession, they produced offspring that were sired by both males. At the time of his review, Parker (e) presented evidence of multiple paternity, and thus the potential for sexual selection via sperm competition, in sixteen. As such it represents a marriage of two disciplines-entomology and modern evolutionary theory-which have recently made great strides, but in partial isolation from each other. By reviewing all of insect reproductive behavior from an evolutionary viewpoint, Thornhill and Alcock make a powerful case for the importance of sexual selection.

About this book. In this broad-based book, sexual competition in insects and arachnids are investigated, teasing out the variety of ways in which males and females pursue, persuade, manipulate, control and help one another. Insect Evolutionary Ecology: Proceedings of the Royal Entomological Society's 22nd Symposium.

Royal Entomological Society of London. Insects provide excellent model systems for understanding evolutionary ecology. They are abundant, small, and relatively easy to rear, and these traits facilitate both field and laboratory experiments.

Insects and arachnids display the most impressive diversity of mating and social behavior among all animals. This book investigates sexual competition in these groups, and the variety of ways in which males and females pursue, persuade, manipulate, control and help one another, enabling us to gain a better understanding of how conflicts and confluences of interest evolve together.

Sexual selection can be divided into two major forms: intra sexual selection and inter sexual selection. Intrasexual selection occurs when members of one sex compete among each other for access to potential mates.

Male–male competition is the most common form of intrasexual selection. Sperm Competition and the Evolution of Animal Mating Systems describes the role of sperm competition in selection on a range of attributes from gamete morphology to species mating systems.
