Research on aggression has traditionally focused on male-male aggression, both in human and non-human animals. However, female-female aggression can have serious impacts on individual survival, reproductive success, and even a species’ ability to adapt to environmental change. My work investigates the relationship between reproduction and female aggression in a variety of insect systems – including stalk-eyed flies, fruit flies, and water striders. In this talk, I focus on how mating makes female fruit flies more aggressive and why that might happen.
