Repeatability: Its role in evolutionary studies of mating behavior
  • C. Boake
  • Biology
  • Evolutionary Ecology
  • 1 April 1989
SummaryRepeatability, a concept derived from quantitative genetics theory, is a statistic that describes the degree to which variation within individuals contributes to total variation in aExpand

Genetic Tools for Studying Adaptation and the Evolution of Behavior
The rapid expansion of genomic and molecular genetic techniques in model organisms, and the application of these techniques to organisms that are less well studied genetically, make it possible toExpand

Quantitative Genetic Studies of Behavioral Evolution
This text examines the theory and methods of quantitative genetics and presents case studies that illustrate the many ways in which the methods can be applied. The author brings together currentExpand

Is sexual selection and species recognition a continuum? Mating behavior of the stalk-eyed fly Drosophila heteroneura.
If behavioral isolation between species can evolve as a consequence of sexual selection within a species, then traits that are both sexually selected and used as a criterion of species recognition byExpand

Courtship behaviour and mating success of wild-caughtDrosophila silvestrismales
The courtship sequences of wild-caughtDrosophila silvestrismales paired with virgin females (the daughters of wild-caught females) were studied in the laboratory to examine behavioural charactersExpand

Sexual Signaling and Speciation, a Microevolutionary Perspective
  • C. Boake
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Genetica
  • 1 November 2002
Despite the growing evidence that sexual selection can drive speciation, the evolution of sexual signals in natural populations is far from being well-understood. Sexual signals evolve in response toExpand

The femoral setiferous glands of Tribolium castaneum males and production of the pheromone 4,8‐dimethyldecanal
Insects inhabiting grain storage areas may rely primarily upon chemical cues for aggregation and mate attraction (Levinson & Levinson, 1995). The red flour beetle, Tribolium castaneum,is anExpand

Coevolution of senders and receivers of sexual signals: Genetic coupling and genetic correlations.
  • C. Boake
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Trends in ecology & evolution
  • 1 July 1991
The parallel evolution of senders and receivers of sexual signals has been a topic of research in both neuroethology and evolutionary quantitative genetics. Neuroethologists have debated whether theExpand

On the Evolution of Premating Isolation after a Founder Event
We present a new simple model for the evolution of premating reproductive isolation. Using this model we first analyze the level of genetic variability maintained by mutation in a large stableExpand
