Summary: Current Biology Vol 16 No 7

survive mate searching, during
which 80% of males perish [14],
will be more intense than sexual
selection for scramble competition
for virgin females (90% median
paternity for the first male to mate)
[15]. As multiple males commonly
settle on females' webs [16], male
density will also affect competitive
success. We, therefore, examined
male growth, development time,
and body condition as a function
of diet, female treatment and
male density. We also assessed
male phenotypes as a function
of female proximity in the field
(Supplemental Data).
