Sexual Selection: Evolutionary Perspectives, Mating Strategies and Long-Term Effects on Genetic Variation


Robert M. Geldani (Editor)
Matthew A. Davin (Editor)

Series: Genetics – Research and Issues
BISAC: SCI029000

In this book, the authors present current research in the study of the evolutionary perspectives, mating strategies and long-term effects on genetic variation of sexual selection. Topics discussed in this compilation include sexual dimorphism in insect longevity; evidence of natural and sexual selection shaping the size of nuptial gifts among a single bush-cricket genus; mate choice copying in both sexes of the guppy; and sexual selection under parental choice.
