Our recent paper “Male mating success and the effect of mating history on ejaculate traits in a facultatively parthenogenic insect” just got accepted for publication at Ethology journal. In this study we investigated male mating frequency and changes in ejaculate quality and quantity in Extatosoma tiaratum.
Live E. tiaratum sperm stained with SYBR Green and dead sperm stained with Propidium iodide.
Talented biologist and artist Kate Cranney made a beautiful painting of the spiny leafs along with an interview with me about my PhD thesis for the Farrago magazine. Check out other stories on Kate’s website katecranney.com/drawn-to-science
