Bibliography on female remating, sperm storage, and sperm competition in Drosophila.

     This bibliography includes the papers published on female remating, sperm storage, sperm competition and its consequences such as sperm precedence or sperm displacement with role of male accessory gland fluids in female remating in several species of Drosophila. Female remating is fundamental to evolutionary biology as it determines the pattern of sexual selection and sexual conflict. Remating in females is an important component of Drosophila mating systems, because females store the sperm after mating in the spermathecae and ventral receptacles and utilize them to fertilize eggs as they are laid. The phenomenon of remating by females is a prerequisite for the occurrence of sperm competition between males. The total impact of sperm competition on male fitness and significant effect of remating on the fitness of female, combine to make an excellent example of sexual selection. However, the abstracts of symposia and conferences have not been included. In this bibliography we have tried to cover the literature on female remating, sperm storage and sperm competition up to April 2002. We apologize to the readers for inadvertent omission of any paper. One (SRS) of the authors thanks the CSIR, New Delhi for the award of Senior Research Fellowship (SRF) to him.
