Table 1 Species and strain genotypes used to create experimental communities

From: Demographic consequences of reproductive interference in multi-species communities

Species Strain: genotypea Phenotype Tendency to receive male sperm
C. briggsae JU610: mfIs5[Cbr-egl-17::GFP; Cel-myo-2::GFP] GFP-marked ‘wild type’ facultative outcrossing hermaphrodites Moderate
C. briggsae VX0262: Cbr-she-1(v83) ‘Feminized’ females and males High
C. briggsae DY199: Cbr-lin-39(bh23) ‘Vulvaless’ selfing hermaphrodites Low
C. nigoni b VX0090: mfIs42[Cel-sid-2; Cel-myo-2::DsRed2] DsRed-marked females and ‘harmful’ males High
C. elegans PD4790: mIs12 II [myo-2p::GFP + pes-10p::GFP + F22B7.9p::GFP] GFP-marked ‘wild type’ facultative outcrossing hermaphrodites Moderate
C. elegans JK574: fog-2(q71) ‘Feminized’ females and males High
C. elegans PS436: let-60(sy93) ‘Vulvaless’ selfing hermaphrodites Low
