Female sticklebacks use male coloration in mate choice and hence avoid parasitized males
It is shown that in the three-spined stickleback (Gasterosteus aculeatus) the intensity of male red breeding coloration positively correlates with physical condition, and the females recognize the formerly parasitized males by the lower intensity of theirbreeding coloration.
PARASITE‐INDUCED CHANGES IN BEHAVIOR AND COLOR MAKE GAMMARUS PULEX MORE PRONE TO FISH PREDATION
It is shown for the first time that both parasite color and changed intermediate host behavior promote the transmission of P. laevis to its next host.
The genetic basis of female mate preferences
The evidence for genetic variation in female and male mate preferences is reviewed, and evidence for the presence of genetic covariance between mate preferences and sexual traits in the other sex is reviewed.
Artificial selection for short and long attack latencies in wildMus musculus domesticus
Artificial selection for short and long attack latency levels in wild maleMus musculus over 11 generations was successful for short latencies and suggests that no genetic correlation exists between aggressiveness of males and females.
Positive genetic correlation between female preference and preferred male ornament in sticklebacks

This prediction is tested at the within-population level with three-spined sticklebacks, Gasterosteus aculeatus, which show conspicuous sexual dichromatisnr, and the redness of the sons correlated with the preference for red of their sisters, thus the two traits show positive genetic correlation.
Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology at 40
An examination of the focal species of articles published in BES during 1976 and 1977 with those in 2015 suggests that the use of social insect models in the early years of BES, likely fueled by the prolific research of co-editors Wilson and Hölldobler as well as the path-breaking work on altruism, is still relevant.
Cooperation through indirect reciprocity: image scoring or standing strategy?

A new theoretical study confirmed that a strategy aiming at 'good standing' has superior properties and easily beats image scoring, and a new empirical study with 23 groups of seven human subjects each was designed for distinguishing between the two proposed mechanisms experimentally.
Sexual selection: Condition-related mate choice in sticklebacks
This work allows female laboratory-bred three-spined sticklebacks, Gasterosteus aculeatus, to choose between computer animations of courting males, and finds that the choice of mate correlates well with female physical condition.
Female mate choice and male red coloration in a natural three-spined stickleback (Gasterosteus aculeatus) population
Simultaneous female choice experiments in the laboratory suggested that ripe females of this population preferred redder males, and it was verified by observing a freshwater stickleback population in its natural habitat.
Determinants of Dominance in Male Sticklebacks (Gasterosteus Aculeatus L.)
It appeared that the males of the three-spined stickleback could be arranged in a linear order of dominance, and the brightness of their colouration was probably the most consistent and decisive determinant of dominance.
