    Matthew J G Gage
    School of Biological Sciences, University of East Anglia, Norwich NR4 7TJ, UK
    Curr Biol 15:R124-6. 2005
    ..Two new studies demonstrate, first, how an influential male sex peptide in Drosophila is delivered to the female bound directly onto sperm cells, and second, that its subsequent release has significant reproductive costs for females...
  5. ncbi request reprint Evolution: sexual arms races
    Matt Gage
    Centre for Ecology, Evolution and Conservation, School of Biological Sciences, University of East Anglia, Norwich NR4 7TJ, UK
    Curr Biol 14:R378-80. 2004
    ..Recent studies in which experimental selection trials were carried out under conditions of either 'high' or 'low' sexual conflict show that conflict can promote speciation and reduce female reproductive success...

    Proc Biol Sci 270:625-32. 2003
