CLIMBING TO REACH FEMALES: ROMEO SHOULD BE SMALL
The race for reaching mates by the time they are receptive, or sexual selection by scramble competition, has received little attention. We argue that smaller males are favored in species in which theExpand

Analysing body condition: mass, volume or density?
1. Body condition (defined as the relative amount of energy reserves in the body) is an animal trait with strong ecological implications. In some animal taxa (e.g. arthropods), the external volume ofExpand

Climate Change and Eco-Evolutionary Dynamics in Food Webs
Abstract The analysis of the causes of selection is in essence a problem in ecology Wade and Kalisz 1990 Past evolution determines the genetically determined available phenotypes in populations whichExpand

Food webs are networks of species that feed on each other. The role that within-population phenotypic and genetic variation plays in food web structure is largely unknown. Here, I show via simulationExpand

Sex‐specific plasticity of growth and maturation size in a spider: implications for sexual size dimorphism
Sex‐specific plasticity in body size has been recently proposed to cause intraspecific patterns of variation in sexual size dimorphism (SSD). We reared juvenile male and female MediterraneanExpand

Approach Strategy by which Male Mediterranean Tarantulas Adjust to the Cannibalistic Behaviour of Females
In sexually cannibalistic species, selection is thought to have favoured the evolution of male approaching behaviour that reduces the probability that the female will kill the male. However,Expand

Optimal climbing speed explains the evolution of extreme sexual size dimorphism in spiders
Several hypotheses have been put forward to explain the evolution of extreme sexual size dimorphism (SSD). Among them, the gravity hypothesis (GH) explains that extreme SSD has evolved in spidersExpand

O matrices and eco-evolutionary dynamics.
‘Natural selection is not evolution’ [1]. This simple statement explains how the study of natural selection is pursued, as it separates within-generation natural selection from theExpand

Plotting partial correlation and regression in ecological studies
Abstract. Multiple regression, the General linear model (GLM) and the Generalized linear model (GLZ) are widely used in ecology. The widespread use of graphs that include fitted regression lines toExpand
