Sexual selection and sex ratio in flies and moths
Thesis or dissertation
University of Exeter
In this thesis, I am interested in the role of conflict and competition in shaping mating systems. Specifically, I will be focusing on two aspects that are integral to determining reproductive fitness, namely male-male competition in the Indian meal moth (Plodia interpunctella) and conflict that stems from selfish genetic elements that distort the sex ratio in the fruit fly (Drosophila pseudoobscura).
