Molecular markers reveal reproductive strategies of non-pollinating fig wasps

Abstract:

1. Fig wasps have proved extremely useful study organisms for testing how reproductive decisions evolve in response to population structure. In particular, they provide textbook examples of how natural selection can favour female-biased offspring sex ratios, lethal combat for mates and dimorphic mating strategies.
2. However, previous work has been challenged, because supposedly single species have been discovered to be a number of cryptic species. Consequently, new studies are re...
