Allometry for Sexual Size Dimorphism: Pattern and Process in the Coevolution of Body Size in Males and Females
Sexual size dimorphism (SSD) is common in both plants and animals, and current evidence suggests that it reflects the adaptation of males and females to their different reproductive roles. WhenExpand
Guidelines for estimating repeatability
TLDR
We report a range of ICCs from the literature and estimate 95% confidence intervals for these estimates. Expand
Allometry for Sexual Size Dimorphism: Testing Two Hypotheses for Rensch’s Rule in the Water Strider Aquarius remigis

Within any given clade, male size and female size typically covary, but male size often varies more than female size. This generates a pattern of allometry for sexual size dimorphism (SSD) known asExpand
A Comparative Analysis of Allometry for Sexual Size Dimorphism: Assessing Rensch's Rule
Rensch's rule states that sexual size dimorphism (SSD) increases with body size (hyperallometry) in taxa in which males are the larger sex and decreases with body size (hypoallometry) in those inExpand
Sex, size, and gender roles : evolutionary studies of sexual size dimorphism
SECTION I: MACRO-PATTERNS: EXPLAINING BROAD-SCALE PATTERNS OF VARIATION IN SEXUAL SIZE DIMORPHISM SECTION II: MICRO-PATTERNS: CASE STUDIES OF PATTERNS AND EVOLUTIONARY PROCESSES WITHIN AND AMONGExpand
The evolution of trade‐offs: where are we?
Trade‐offs are a core component of many evolutionary models, particularly those dealing with the evolution of life histories. In the present paper, we identify four topics of key importance forExpand
Wing Dimorphisms and the Evolution of Migratory Polymorphisms among the Insecta
Many species of insects exhibit wing dimorphism, one morph having fully developed wings and the other morph having reduced wings and being incapable of flight. These wing dimorphisms provide visibleExpand
Proximate Causes of Rensch’s Rule: Does Sexual Size Dimorphism in Arthropods Result from Sex Differences in Development Time?
A prominent interspecific pattern of sexual size dimorphism (SSD) is Rensch’s rule, according to which male body size is more variable or evolutionarily divergent than female body size. AssumingExpand
The quantitative genetics of sexual dimorphism: assessing the importance of sex-linkage
Sexual dimorphism (SD) is a defining feature of gonochorous animals and dioecious plants, but the evolution of SD from an initially monomorphic genome presents a conundrum. Theory predicts that theExpand
The Evolution and Genetics of Migration in Insects
ABSTRACT Because areas suitable for growth and reproduction are often ephemeral, a primary selective force in the evolution of migratory behavior in insects is the need to colonize new habitats.Expand
