Sexual Shape and Size Dimorphism in Carabid Beetles of the Genus Ceroglossus: is Geometric Body Size Similar Between Sexes Due to Sex Ratio?
This study analyzes the occurrence of sexual shape dimorphism and the correlation between geometric body size in males and females and sex ratio in the genus Ceroglossus using geometric morphometrics and randomization analysis to propose that the observed differences between sexes associated with the sex ratio are due to an energy cost caused by sexual selection.
