Figure 2

Size disparity versus log (duration of male-male mounts) for Japanese beetles ( Popillia japonica ). Size disparity = bottom male size minus top male size. Data are from the 10-male group experiment. The line represents a simple linear fit to these data. Data include only the longest pairing for each top male (N = 101 pairs).
