Sexually antagonistic polymorphism in simultaneous hermaphrodites

Evolution; International Journal of Organic Evolution

Oct 15, 2014

Crispin Y Jordan, Tim Connallon

Abstract

In hermaphrodites, pleiotropic genetic trade-offs between female and male reproductive functions can lead to sexually antagonistic (SA) selection, where individual alleles have conflicting fitness effects on each sex function. Although an extensive theory of SA selection exists for dioe...read more
