Reproductive traits: Evidence for sexually selected sperm


Martin, O Y; Demont, M (2008). Reproductive traits: Evidence for sexually selected sperm. Current Biology, 18(2):R79-R81.

Abstract

Sperm exhibit extraordinary morphological divergence yet precise evolutionary causes often remain elusive. A quantitative genetic study sheds light on the major role postcopulatory sexual selection could play in determining sperm size.
