New findings on fertility: Sperm can adapt to sexually transmitted microbes

Researchers from Dresden University of Technology (TUD) and the University of Sheffield have discovered that male fertility can adapt to microbes. These finding shed new light on the importance of sperm ecology and might have significant implications for evolutionary biology and medical research, particularly in understanding and treating infertility. The work has now been published in the journal “Evolution Letters”.
