Number of complete copulations
is followed by number of partial copulations
; each intromission was counted as a copulation
Pairs in copula typically aborted copulation
shortly after collection but often resumed at sporadic intervals over the 3-d study period (30/65 pairs).
We observed overall maximum copulation
rate in iron mesh cage where the temperature was almost the same of that in the mating room.
Male mate choice, sexual conflict and strategic allocation of copulations
in a lekking bird.
Where dung is abundant, pheromone emission by African species once again highlights the priority in these species of copulation
over offering food, in contrast to what occurs in S.
It well could be that the low number of eggs was the result of encounters that did not end up in copulation
, which would have than reduced the total mean number of eggs.
Of the 39 copulation
events observed during the course of the investigation, 37 of the pairs were in the vertical mating position for the duration of the copulation
Something similar tempts theologians drawn to theopoetics: by ignoring the copulation
signaled by the term theopoetics--the coupling of Greek roots for god and to make--some reduce theology to poetical practices.
However, polyandrous females laid 10% more eggs and so achieved higher fecundity than females allowed only a single copulation
As measured by the number of copulation
onsets and breaks, first males had fewer copulations
In fact, the positions assumed during copulation
are so characteristic and unique that they may be used, perhaps for the first time, to delimit an entire subfamily of insects.
consisted of a single insertion of the aedagus that lasted 3.
