Disposable-soma senescence mediated by sexual selection in an ungulate
Senescence may result from an optimal balance between current reproductive investment and bodily repair processes required for future reproduction, a theoretical prediction difficult to proveExpand

Sexual selection in the ring-necked pheasant: a review
The common pheasant, Phasianus colchicus, is now considered a classic example of the difficulty of establishing a clear distinction between inter- and intrasexual selection since a role for maleExpand

Signals in intra-sexual competition between ring-necked pheasant males
Abstract Many sexual ornaments are signals commonly used in both sexual selection contexts: mate choice and intra-sexual competition. Previous studies show that female choice in ring-neckedExpand

Fluctuating asymmetry of red deer antlers negatively relates to individual condition and proximity to prime age
After about 50 years of research on fluctuating asymmetry (FA) as a reliable indicator of both individual quality and environmental stress, the enthusiasm is beginning to decline. The findings ofExpand

The role of bright plumage in male–male interactions in the ring-necked pheasant
The brightness and colour of birds' plumages have been considered sexually selected traits, indicating health, condition or parasite resistance. However, recent studies with pheasants, PhasianusExpand

Parents increase their parental effort when aided by helpers in a cooperatively breeding bird
In cooperatively breeding species, parents may be assisted by other individuals to feed the young. How breeding parents react when they receive help is poorly understood. Evidence suggests thatExpand

How should breeders react when aided by helpers?
In cooperatively breeding systems, breeders may reduce their provisioning to the brood when aided by helpers. However, this is found in only some species, and the reasons for the different reactionsExpand

Effects of male dominance and courtship display on female choice in the ring-necked pheasant
Abstract Male traits and behaviours acting in mate choice and intrasexual competition are expected to be congruent. When studying their evolution, this often makes it difficult to differentiateExpand

Polygyny can increase rather than decrease genetic diversity contributed by males relative to females: evidence from red deer
Polygyny is expected to erode genetic variability by reducing the diversity of genetic contribution of males to the next generation, although empirical evidence shows that genetic variability inExpand
