What we currently do (in 2012 and 2013):
Females become infertile as the stored sperm's oxygen radicals increase.
Challenging cryptic sperm choice: females respond more strongly to non-genetic than genetic sperm variation.
Sperm competition in Drosophila melanogaster: low heritability, but phenotypic plasticity and temporal variation.
Mitochondria replacement, Evolution, and the Clinic.
See here the statement by British government authority who have, within hours, dismissed our findings. More to come...
