Stocks.--For the interrupted mating experiments, three stocks were used.
Procedures.--A summary of the interrupted mating experiments is presented in the first four columns of table 4.
Perhaps a larger sample size would have shown the effect, which is shown in the interrupted mating experiments (see below).

Statistical analysis of the interrupted mating experiments.
The interrupted mating and sterile-male experiments reported here independently lead to the same conclusion: stored sperm are effectively lost by transfer of seminal fluid.
In a previous laboratory study, interrupted mating did not result in decreased progeny production (Gromko et al.
