  • 1 April 1989
TLDR
Measures of the repeatability of female mating preferences will provide data that can describe the preference functions used in mathematical models of the evolution of sexually selected traits, as well as putting an upper bound on the heritability of preferences.
Genetic Tools for Studying Adaptation and the Evolution of Behavior
TLDR
This article reviews how genetic analyses of behavior are central to topics ranging from understanding past selection and predicting future evolution to explaining the neural and hormonal control of behavior and shows the great promise for evolutionary behavioral genetics.
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 current
Is sexual selection and species recognition a continuum? Mating behavior of the stalk-eyed fly Drosophila heteroneura.
TLDR
It is found that males with broad heads are more successful in sexual selection, both through female mate choice and through aggressive interactions, and this novel trait is sexually selected but is not a major contributor to species recognition.
Courtship behaviour and mating success of wild-caught Drosophila silvestris males
TLDR
It appears that although receptive females do not have a particular signal that invariably indicates receptivity, they encourage male courtship throughout the sequence, by being active early, and standing still later.
Sexual Signaling and Speciation, a Microevolutionary Perspective
TLDR
This paper presents an approach that involves two analyses: studies of which signals are sexually selected within a species, and parallel studies of the signals that are involved in behavioral isolation between closely related species to provide support for the hypothesis that sexual selection can drive speciation.
