ON THE MEASUREMENT OF NATURAL AND SEXUAL SELECTION: THEORY
  • S. J. Arnold, M. Wade
  • Biology, Medicine
    Evolution; international journal of organic…
  • 1 July 1984
TLDR
An approach to the empirical measurement of selection that is directly related to formal evolutionary theory is illustrated and a mode of data analysis that describes selection in useful, theoretical terms is presented so that field or experimental results will have a tangible relationship to equations for evolutionary change.
THE EVOLUTION OF INSECT MATING SYSTEMS.
  • M. Wade
  • Medicine
    Evolution; international journal of organic…
  • 1984
TLDR
That's it, a book to wait for in this month for releasing this book the evolution of insect mating systems; you may not be able to get in some stress, so don't go around and seek fro the book until you really get it.
Mating Systems and Strategies
TLDR
This book presents the first unified conceptual and statistical framework for understanding the evolution of reproductive strategies and offers a method for quantifying how the strength of sexual selection is affected by the ecological and life history processes that influence females' spatial and temporal clustering and reproductive schedules.
ON THE MEASUREMENT OF NATURAL AND SEXUAL SELECTION: APPLICATIONS
  • S. J. Arnold, M. Wade
  • Biology, Medicine
    Evolution; international journal of organic…
  • 1 July 1984
TLDR
This paper uses measures of selection developed by quantitative geneticists and some new results to analyze multiple episodes of selection in natural populations of amphibians, reptiles, and insects.
EXTINCTION AND RECOLONIZATION: THEIR EFFECTS ON THE GENETIC DIFFERENTIATION OF LOCAL POPULATIONS
  • M. Wade, D. Mccauley
  • Biology, Medicine
    Evolution; international journal of organic…
  • 1 September 1988
TLDR
In this paper, a model by Slatkin (1977) is used to investigate the genetic effects of extinction and recolonization for a species whose population structure consists of an array of local demes with some migration among them and it is found that these genetic effects are surprisingly insensitive to the extinction rate.
Sexual Selection and Variance in Reproductive Success
  • M. Wade
  • Biology
    The American Naturalist
  • 1 November 1979
TLDR
The purpose of this letter is to derive a concise expression for the variance in male reproductive success in terms of the variation in reproductive success among females, and to illustrate that relative parental investment as defined by Trivers is not an adequate measure of the intensity of intrasexual selection.
The joint effects of kin, multilevel selection and indirect genetic effects on response to genetic selection
  • P. Bijma, M. Wade
  • Biology, Medicine
    Journal of evolutionary biology
  • 1 September 2008
TLDR
This work presents a measure for the degree of multilevel selection, which is the natural partner of relatedness in expressions for response, indicating that both factors have exactly the same effect in response to selection.
PERSPECTIVE: THE THEORIES OF FISHER AND WRIGHT IN THE CONTEXT OF METAPOPULATIONS: WHEN NATURE DOES MANY SMALL EXPERIMENTS
  • M. Wade, C. Goodnight
  • Biology, Sociology
    Evolution; international journal of organic…
  • 1 December 1998
We critically review the two major theories of adaptive evolution developed early in this century, Wright's shifting balance theory and Fisher's large population size theory, in light of novel
