Chemical stimuli induce courtship dominance in Drosophila [1]

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Courtship dominance in male Drosophila occurs when a male directs high levels of courtship towards another male, who remains passive [1]. We investigated the cues that shape this effect and report here that it is induced by the perception of adult male cuticular hydrocarbons during a critical period.
