Drosophila female courtship and mating behaviors: sensory signals, genes, neural structures and evolution.

Abstract : Interest in Drosophila courtship behavior has a long-standing tradition, starting with the works by Sturtevant in 1915, and by Bastock and Manning in the 50s. The neural and genetic base of Drosophila melanogaster courtship behavior has made big strides in recent years, but the studies on males far outnumber those on females. Recent technical developments have made it possible to begin to unravel the biological substrates underlying the complexity of Drosophila female sexual behavior and its decisive effect on mating success. The present review focus more on the female side and summarizes the sensory signals that the male sends, using multiple channels, and which neural circuits and genes are mediating sex-specific behavioral responses.
