What is the biological lesson provided by examples of unusual mating structures and behaviors such as Drosophila with giant sperm or birds with false penises?

Mating behaviors and structures are remarkably varied, sometimes involving the death of the male.

Elaborate mating behaviors and structures are far more common in vertebrates than in invertebrates.

The energy some animals devote to maintaining specific structures or behaviors often does not pay off in terms of reproductive success.

Animals with mating rituals involving the death of the male typically experience low reproductive success.
