INTERACTING PHENOTYPES AND THE EVOLUTIONARY PROCESS: I. DIRECT AND INDIRECT GENETIC EFFECTS OF SOCIAL INTERACTIONS
TLDR
This work adopts a quantitative genetic approach to assess genetic influences on interacting phenotypes and partition genetic and environmental effects so that traits in conspecifics that influence the expression of interacting phenotype are a component of the environment. Expand
Visualizing and quantifying natural selection.
TLDR
Combinations of quantitative and visual analyses are providing researchers with new insights into the details of natural selection in the wild, through graphical representation of selection surfaces. Expand
Immune function across generations: integrating mechanism and evolutionary process in maternal antibody transmission
TLDR
Integration of the proximate mechanisms of maternal antibody transmission with evolutionary theory on maternal effects affords an important opportunity to unite mechanism and process by focusing on the links between genetics, environment and physiology. Expand
DIFFERENTIAL AVOIDANCE OF CORAL SNAKE BANDED PATTERNS BY FREE‐RANGING AVIAN PREDATORS IN COSTA RICA

  • 1 February 1993
TLDR
Direct field evidence is provided that coral snake banded patterns are avoided by free‐ranging avian predators and supports theoretical predictions about mimicry systems involving deadly models. Expand
Parent-Offspring Coadaptation and the Dual Genetic Control of Maternal Care
TLDR
Evidence is found from two cross-foster experiments that variation in maternal care also stems from two distinct genetic sources: variation among offspring in their ability to elicit care and variation among parents in their response to offspring signals. Expand
CORRELATIONAL SELECTION FOR COLOR PATTERN AND ANTIPREDATOR BEHAVIOR IN THE GARTER SNAKE THAMNOPHIS ORDINOIDES

  • 1 October 1992
TLDR
Analysis of the bivariate selection surface shows that pure correlational selection can be thought of as a series of linear selection functions on one trait whose slopes depend on the value of the second trait, and that correlation selection alone can promote genetic variance and covariance within a generation.

Evolutionary diversification of TTX-resistant sodium channels in a predator–prey interaction
TLDR
Novel changes in the molecular structure of a sodium channel expressed in snake skeletal muscle, tsNaV1.4, are identified that are responsible for differences in tetrodotoxin resistance among garter snake populations coevolving with toxic newts. Expand
Phenotypic Mismatches Reveal Escape from Arms-Race Coevolution
TLDR
The emergent pattern suggests a dynamic in which interacting species experience reciprocal selection that drives arms-race escalation of both prey and predator phenotypes at a subset of localities across the interaction, until the evolution of extreme phenotypes by predators allows snakes to, at least temporarily, escape the arms race.
