Conspecific sperm precedence is reinforced, but postcopulatory sexual selection weakened, in sympatric populations of Drosophila

Reinforcement can have collateral affects on sexual selection only when there is a shared genetic basis. In this case the shared genetic basis includes genes that contribute to both conspecific sperm precedence and within population gamete interactions

Male–female genotype interactions maintain variation in traits important for sexual interactions and reproductive isolation

We demonstrate that female mating preference for specific male genotypes segregates in populations. This might explain how rapid speciation by sexual selection could occur
