Title Buzatto et al - Alternative phenotypes within mating systems - literature review
Downloaded 85 times
Description This file contains the list of articles covered by our literature review on alternative mating phenotypes (AMP) in insects. For our classification of AMPs: they can be conditional (C) or mendelian (Mend, pure genetic polymorphism); fixed (F) or reversible (R). We also included whether male morphology determines (D), influences (I) or is irrelevant (Irr) for the mating behaviour employed by individuals; and whether there is morphological dimorphism (Y for yes, N for no) among individuals. ? indicates uncertainty, whereas lack of information is omitted. Our review is based on a search of the literature (through Web of Science) using the key-words ‘alternative’, ‘mating’, ‘reproductive’, ‘tactic(s)’, ‘strategy(ies)’, and combinations thereof. Even though we focused here only in mating phenotypes, and not on other features of insect reproduction (such as oviposition strategies, for instance), we still included ‘reproductive’ in our keywords because the usage of the term ‘alternative reproductive tactics/strategies’ in the literature often encompasses AMPs. However, some studies describe the sort of intraspecific variation in mating phenotypes that falls under the umbrella of AMPs, without using any of the key-words mentioned above, and have likely been missed. Moreover, to restrict our literature search to studies on insects, we also used the keywords ‘insect(s)’ and ‘Insecta’, and we might have missed studies that only treated their focal species by a common name. We therefore anticipate that our review is somewhat incomplete, and AMPs are probably even more widespread than currently recognized. We wouldn’t be surprised if they were the rule, rather than the exception, in insect mating systems. Our review covered a total of 353 references, including journal articles and chapters in peer-reviewed books, published between 1934 and 2012.
