Genetic correlation between a female mating preference and the preferred male character in seaweed flies (Coelopa frigida)



Genetic correlation between a female mating preference and the preferred male character in seaweed flies (Coelopa frigida)



Evolution 47(6): 1788-1795



The mating preference of female seaweed flies (Coelopa frigida) for males of a certain size was investigated. Females carrying the inversion karyotypes associated with either large or small males tended to choose large males, although this preference was significantly less strong in females that carried the small male karyotype. This relationship suggests that a genetic correlation exists between the mating preference and the preferred trait and indicates the operation of a Fisherian process.
