  • Animal Behaviour
  • 1 December 1997
This study demonstrates that invertebrate acoustic signals can provide information about male phenotypic attributes, and that females can use this acoustic information in mate choice to select aExpand

Fecal cortisol levels in free-ranging female chacma baboons: relationship to dominance, reproductive state and environmental factors
Savannah baboons are one of the few mammalian species that do not exhibit seasonal reproduction patterns and are therefore ideally suited to study the effect of female reproductive states (cycling,Expand

QUANTITATIVE GENETICS OF SEXUAL SELECTION IN THE FIELD CRICKET, GRYLLUS INTEGER
  • D. A. Gray, W. Cade
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic…
  • 1 June 1999
Major theories of sexual selection predict heritable variation in female preferences and male traits and a positive genetic correlation between preference and trait. Here we show that female TexasExpand

Carotenoids and Sexual Dichromatism in North American Passerine Birds
  • D. A. Gray
  • Biology
  • The American Naturalist
  • 26 May 1996
Sexual dichromatism and the extent of male carotenoid-derived plumage coloration in breeding season North American passerine birds was analyzed by phylogenetic statistical methods. Passerines as aExpand

Fine-scale temperature effects on cricket calling song
The effects of temperature on the structure of cricket calling song were examined in the trilling field cricket Gryllus integer. A repeated-measures design was used to assess the effects of tempera...

  • Biology, Medicine
  • Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences…
  • 19 December 2000
Recent theoretical work has shown that sexual selection may cause speciation under a much wider range of conditions than previously supposed. There are, however, no empirical studies capable ofExpand

Describing mate preference functions and other function‐valued traits
Mate preferences are important causes of sexual selection. They shape the evolution of sexual ornaments and displays, sometimes maintaining genetic diversity and sometimes promoting speciation. MateExpand

Intrinsic Factors Affecting Female Choice in House Crickets: Time Cost, Female Age, Nutritional Condition, Body Size, and Size-Relative Reproductive Investment
  • D. A. Gray
  • Biology
  • Journal of Insect Behavior
  • 1 September 1999
Few studies have examined potential costs of female choice and factors intrinsic to females that affect choice. To examine these factors, female house crickets, Acheta domesticus, were presented withExpand

Sex, death, and genetic variation: natural and sexual selection on cricket song
Male field crickets, Gryllus integer, in Texas, USA, produce a trilled calling song that attracts female crickets, resulting in enhanced mating success. Gravid female parasitoid flies, OrmiaExpand

Divergence between the Courtship Songs of the Field Crickets Gryllus texensis and Gryllus rubens (Orthoptera, Gryllidae)
Acoustic mating signals are often important as both interspecific prezygotic isolating mechanisms and as sexually selected traits in intraspecific mate choice. Here, we investigate the potential forExpand
