Intraspecific evidence from guppies for correlated patterns of male and female genital trait diversification
The role of sexual selection in fuelling genital evolution is becoming increasingly apparent from comparative studies revealing interspecific divergence in male genitalia and evolutionaryExpand

Female praying mantids use sexual cannibalism as a foraging strategy to increase fecundity
Several hypotheses have been proposed to explain the evolution of sexual cannibalism. The foraging strategy hypothesis states that sexual cannibalism may arise as an adaptive foraging strategy,Expand

Mate location, antennal morphology, and ecology in two praying mantids (Insecta: Mantodea)
The sensory systems employed by animals to locate potential mates are diverse. Among insects, chemical and acoustic signals are commonly used over long distances, with visual signals playing a roleExpand

Genital shape correlates with sperm transfer success in the praying mantis Ciulfina klassi (Insecta: Mantodea)
The rapid divergence of male genitalia is a widely observed evolutionary phenomenon. Although sexual selection is currently regarded as providing the most likely driving force behind genitalExpand

Exaggerated Trait Allometry, Compensation and Trade-Offs in the New Zealand Giraffe Weevil (Lasiorhynchus barbicornis)
Sexual selection has driven the evolution of exaggerated traits among diverse animal taxa. The production of exaggerated traits can come at a cost to other traits through trade-offs when resourcesExpand

Male mating behaviour reduces the risk of sexual cannibalism in an Australian praying mantid
In cases where sexual cannibalism represents a sexual conflict, we should expect to find male traits that reduce the risk of cannibalism. In fact, a wide variety of such traits have been proposed,Expand

Multiple exaggerated weapon morphs: a novel form of male polymorphism in harvestmen
Alternative reproductive tactics in animals are commonly associated with distinct male phenotypes resulting in polymorphism of sexually selected weapons such as horns and spines. Typically, morphsExpand

The potential global distribution of the Bronze bug Thaumastocoris peregrinus Carpintero and Dellapé (Hemiptera: Thaumastocoridae)
Thaumastocoris peregrinus is a sap‐feeding insect native to Australia that has become a serious global pest of Eucalyptus species. To date, T. peregrinus has been found in more than 10 countriesExpand

Predatory pollinator deception: Does the orchid mantis resemble a model species?
Cases of imperfect or non-model mimicry are common in plants and animals and challenge intuitive assumptions about the nature of directional selection on mimics. Many non-rewarding flower species doExpand
