Firefly sex success: the secret is in the gift-giving

Male fireflies, known for attracting mates with a flash of light, also seduce with a gift, say scientists.

This gifts comes in the form of a spermatophore: a package containing sperm and nourishment for the female.

The team presented their findings at the First Joint Congress on Evolutionary Biology in Ottawa, Canada.
