Title Female harm viability data
Description This data is associated with the supplementary results, and file was created in Excel. It is the count of individual adults (M=males; F=females) emerging from single pair matings. Females from Control MA lines (not subjected to sexual selection) were paired with random males from either Control or Selection MA lines. Approximately 20 females per MA line were mated with males from the Selection treatment and 20 with males from the Control treatment. Male treatment (C=Control; S=Selection) is recorded. Approximately 10 males per MA line were assayed (MaleMALine, with numbers nested within Treatment). The mating pairs were set-up over 3 days.

Title Viability data
Description This data is the count of the number of individual adults (M=Male; F=Female) emerging from single brother-sister mating pairs. These pairs came from different selection treatments (C=Control; S=Selection), with individual MA lines nested within treatment. File was created in Excel.

Title Male Mating Success
Description This data file was created in Excel. It is the mating success of males in assays in generations 1, 3, 7, 11 and 23 of a mutation accumulation experiment in which one set of 100 lines were subjected to sexual selection on male mating success (Treatment = S) and the other set of 100 lines were not (Treatment = C; Controls). Except in generation 1, C and S males were competed against one another, and half of the assayed males per line had their wings clipped for identification (Clip = 1; males without clip, Clip=0). Trials were conducted over 2 days each generation. The choosing female in these trials came from the stock population. Males were either successful in gaining a mating (choice=1) or unsuccessful (choice=0).

Title Gen 20 male mating success
Description This data file was created in Excel. It is the mating success of males assayed in generation 20, where females from the MA lines choose between a stock male and a male from a MA line. MA lines were divided into two treatments: Controls (C), without sexual selection and Selection (S) with sexual selection. Trials were conducted over 2 days. . Males were either successful in gaining a mating (choice=1) or unsuccessful (choice=0).
