Table S1. Descriptive statistics (median, first, and third quartile) of male body measurements (before storage in 70% ethanol), including the values for the duration of nest building and the time that males cared for a nest (days).
Table S2. Table of linear models (‘lm’). In all models, standard length was additionally included as an explanatory variable and never removed to control for possible age influences. 1. ‘lm’ to compare different testis and sperm traits between breeding regime [outbred versus inbred and outbred versus various levels of inbreeding (first and second + third-generation inbred)]; 2. ‘lm’ including interactions between different testis respectively sperm traits and breeding regime.
Appendix S1. Preparing of stickleback sperm for scanning electron microscopy, modified sensu Mortimer (1994).
