The evolution of polyandry: multiple mating and female fitness in insects
Theory suggests that male fitness generally increases steadily with mating rate, while one or a few matings are sufficient for females to maximize their reproductive success. Contrary to theseExpand

Comparative evidence for the evolution of genitalia by sexual selection
Rapid divergent evolution of male genitalia is one of the most general evolutionary trends in animals with internal fertilization; the shapes of genital traits often provide the only reliableExpand

Sexual conflict and the evolutionary ecology of mating patterns: water striders as a model system.
Two core ideas in the study of mating systems and sexual selection are (1) the existence of a conflict between the sexes over mating decisions, and (2) that variation in ecological conditions drivesExpand

The evolution of animal genitalia: distinguishing between hypotheses by single species studies
Rapid evolution of genitalia is one of the most general patterns of morphological diversification in animals. Despite its generality, the causes of this evolutionary trend remain obscure. SeveralExpand

Antagonistic coevolution between the sexes in a group of insects
In coevolutionary ‘arms races’ between the sexes, the outcome of antagonistic interactions may remain at an evolutionary standstill. The advantage gained by one sex, with any evolutionaryExpand

The Evolution of Infidelity in Socially Monogamous Passerines: The Strength of Direct and Indirect Selection on Extrapair Copulation Behavior in Females
Many studies have been aimed at understanding the maintenance of female infidelity in socially monogamous birds. Because engaging in extrapair copulations (EPCs) is believed to be costly for females,Expand

Meta-analysis: synthesizing research findings in ecology and evolution.
The growing number of empirical studies performed in ecology and evolution creates a need for quantitative summaries of research domains to generate higher-order conclusions about general trends andExpand

Much of the literature on male–female coevolution concerns the processes by which male traits and female preferences for these can coevolve and be maintained by selection. There has been lessExpand

Coevolution between harmful male genitalia and female resistance in seed beetles
Reproductive conflict between the sexes is thought to be a key force in the evolution of many reproductive characters, but persuasive evidence for its significance is still scarce. The spectacularExpand
