Sexual selection and signal evolution : the ghost of biases past
The evolution of female mating preferences is an important key to understanding the evolution of signal diversity. Several hypotheses for preference evolution invoke different processes but all canExpand

  • 1 March 1990
Male túngara frogs (Physalaemus pustulosus) vocalize to attract females, and enhance the attractiveness of their simple, whine‐only call by adding chucks to produce complex calls. Complex callsExpand

Ecological Distribution in Anoline Lizards of Puerto Rico
The eight species of lizards of the genus Anolis in Puerto Rico can be divided into four morphological similarities. One, Anolis curvieri, is very different from the rest and has not been discussedExpand

Sexual selection for sensory exploitation in the frog Physalaemus pustulosus
THE sensory bases of species and population mate preferences are well known1–3; in frogs properties of the female auditory system influence such preferences2,3. By contrast, there is littleExpand

Bat Predation and Sexual Advertisement in a Neotropical Anuran
Many mating systems are characterized by conspicuous male sexual displays (Emlen and Oring 1977; Wells 1977). Predation and parasitism are thought to be important counter-selection forces in theExpand

Decimations, Extinctions, and Colonizations of Frog Populations in Southeast Brazil and Their Evolutionary Implications
Analysis of a 35 year data base on frogs from species assemblages in southeastern Brazil, suggests three kinds of species changes: the appearance of Hyla albopunctata at Boraceia; the possibleExpand

Plasticity in female mate choice associated with changing reproductive states
Flexibility in female mate choice occurs over a range of timescales. We examined this plasticity over the course of a single breeding cycle using phonotaxis tests that assay acoustic-based matingExpand
