But is this diminishing returns a function of increasing reproductive costs or decreasing benefits of sustained effort? Here, we use the restoration of male reproductive effort with unfamiliar females to differentiate the role of diminishing returns and lifetime costs of increased reproductive effort of male guppies. We kept males with familiar or unfamiliar females throughout their lives and manipulated their ability to either court or mate with females. We found that increased male reproductive effort with novel mates lead to an immediate trade-off in the form of reduced foraging effort. Further, males able to mate with a series of unfamiliar females had lower lifetime growth, indicating the primary cost of male reproductive effort in guppies arises from copulation rather than courtship. The lifetime growth trade-offs were significant only when males mated with unfamiliar mates, suggesting that male reproductive effort with familiar females declines before it is restricted by physical exhaustion. These findings provide some of the first evidence of longitudinal costs of increased male reproductive effort in a vertebrate.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Brooks, Robert C.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2017-11-08T10:38:47Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dcterms:title>The lifetime costs of increased male reproductive effort : courtship, copulation and the Coolidge effect</dcterms:title> <dc:creator>Brooks, Robert C.</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Jordan, Lyndon Alexander</dc:creator> <dcterms:issued>2010-11</dcterms:issued> <dc:contributor>Jordan, Lyndon Alexander</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/40516"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2017-11-08T10:38:47Z</dc:date> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
