Latest Female Stories
Guys, you're not going anywhere just yet. Even in species that have learned to reproduce asexually, males play a large role.
A UT Arlington research team says their study of genetic information from more than 4,000 beetle species has yielded a new theory about why some species lose their Y chromosome and others, such as humans, hang on to it.
Man or woman? Male or female? In humans and other mammals, the difference between sexes depends on one single element of the genome: the Y chromosome.
When it comes to choosing a mate, female guppies don't care about who is fairest.
UC Riverside-led research team finds posthumous reproduction in guppies because sperm of dead males survive inside females for at least 10 months
When a female mates with several males, these will compete over the fertilization her eggs.
Guppies in the wild have evolved over at least half-a-million years — long enough for the males' coloration to have changed dramatically.
Scientists at the University of Liverpool have found that male fruitflies experience a type of 'paranoia' in the presence of another male, which doubles the length of time they mate with a female, despite the female of the species only ever mating with one male.
Researchers from Osaka University and the National Institute for Basic Biology, Japan, have found a highly significant connection between the molecular mechanisms underlying genetic and environmental sex determination.
A team of reproductive scientists have successfully produced both male and female mice using two different fathers.
