  1. pmc Variation in preference for a male ornament is positively associated with female eyespan in the stalk-eyed fly Diasemopsis meigenii
    Samuel Cotton
    The Galton Laboratory, Department of Biology, University College London, 4 Stephenson Way, London NW1 2HE, UK
    Proc Biol Sci 273:1287-92. 2006
    ..We found significant variation in the strength of individual preference. In addition, preference was positively associated with female eyespan, a condition-dependent trait putatively linked to visual acuity...
  2. pmc Male sexual ornament size is positively associated with reproductive morphology and enhanced fertility in the stalk-eyed fly Teleopsis dalmanni
    David W Rogers
    The Galton Laboratory, Research Department of Genetics, Evolution and Environment, University College London, 4 Stephenson Way, London, NW1 2HE, UK
    BMC Evol Biol 8:236. 2008
    ..Here we investigate whether male eyespan indicates accessory gland and testis length, and then ask whether mating with large eyespan males affects female fertility...
  3. pmc Assigning sex to pre-adult stalk-eyed flies using genital disc morphology and X chromosome zygosity
    Martin Carr
    Department of Biology, University College London, Wolfson House, 4 Stephenson Way, London, NW1 2HE, UK
    BMC Dev Biol 6:29. 2006
    ..Here we describe two techniques, one morphological and one microsatellite-based, that identify the sex of stalk-eyed fly larvae and pupae...
  4. pmc Mating-induced reduction in accessory reproductive organ size in the stalk-eyed fly Cyrtodiopsis dalmanni
    David W Rogers
    The Galton Laboratory, Department of Biology, University College London, 4 Stephenson Way, London NW1 2HE, UK
    BMC Evol Biol 5:37. 2005
    ..Here we directly manipulate male mating status to investigate the effect of copulation on the size of both the testes and the accessory glands of C. dalmanni...
  5. ncbi request reprint Male genes: X-pelled or X-cluded?
    David W Rogers
    The Galton Laboratory, University College London, London, UK
    Bioessays 25:739-41. 2003
    ..A number of evolutionary hypotheses for the expulsion or exclusion of male-biased genes from the X chromosome have been suggested. None is entirely consistent with the available evidence...

    Curr Biol 15:R334-6. 2005
    ..They also reveal that the offspring of preferred males produce more descendents themselves. Females prefer males with a large song repertoire, which further work shows is a condition-dependent indicator of male quality...
