Table 3 Weighted mean size ± SE and sex proportion of the progeny produced by double mated females.

From: Female-driven mechanisms, ejaculate size and quality contribute to the lower fertility of sex-ratio distorter males in Drosophila simulans

Crossing (N) Male's progeny Before second mating (% females) After second mating (% females) Total progeny (N females)
ST/SR (7) ST 83 ± 7 (52.3) 70.9* 153.9* (80.5)
  SR - 36.5* 36.5* (34.8)
  total 83 ± 7 (52.3) 107.4 ± 11.2 (66.6) 190.4 ± 15.3
SR/ST (17) ST - 89.7* 89.7* (46.9)
  SR 55.2 ± 7.6 (95.3) 12.2* 67.4* (64.2)
  total 55.2 ± 7.6 (95.3) 101.9 ± 5.3 (57.3) 157.1 ± 9.4
  1. * calculated from the sex proportions observed before the second mating. N = number of mating.
