THE ROLE OF MULTILEVEL SELECTION IN THE EVOLUTION OF SEXUAL CONFLICT IN THE WATER STRIDER AQUARIUS REMIGIS
In evolution, exploitative strategies often create a paradox in which the most successful individual strategy “within” the group is also the most detrimental strategy “for” the group, potentiallyExpand
Population Structure Mediates Sexual Conflict in Water Striders
When water striders can disperse among groups, females select for reduced male aggression. Sexual conflict occurs when males and females act against each others’ interest, typically resulting inExpand
Aggressive mating as a tragedy of the commons in the water strider Aquarius remigis
The tragedy of the commons usually refers to the overexploitation of resources such as food or water. Here, we show in a laboratory study that competition among males for females can also result in aExpand
Population structure influences sexual conflict in wild populations of water striders.
In sexual conflict, aggressive males frequently diminish the long-term reproductive success of females in efforts to gain a short-term advantage over rival males. This short-term advantage canExpand
The Effects of Field Mowing on Adult Butterfly Assemblages in Central New York State
Abstract We investigated the effects of mowing on butterfly counts in fields and woodland openings in upstate New York. We predicted that total counts of butterfly individuals would decreaseExpand
Altitudinal differentiation of reproductive tactic plasticity despite the close proximity of two Aquarius remigis populations
In the water strider ( Aquarius remigis ), direct and delayed reproductive tactics are largely canalized in southern and northern areas of North America, respectively. A transition zone occurs inExpand
