The idea that sex chromosomes also play an important role in the evolution of sexually dimorphic traits is evaluated and how the sex chromosomes can facilitate this evolution is suggested.
Sexually antagonistic male adaptation triggered by experimental arrest of female evolution
- W. Rice
- 16 May 1996
It is shown that when female D. melanogaster are experimentally prevented from coevolving with males, males rapidly adapt to the static female phenotype, which leads to a reduction in female survivorship, which is mediated by an increased rate of remating and increased toxicity of seminal fluid.
LABORATORY EXPERIMENTS ON SPECIATION: WHAT HAVE WE LEARNED IN 40 YEARS?
The role of geographical separation in generating allopatry has been overemphasized in the past and its role in generating diminished gene flow in combination with strong, discontinuous, and multifarious divergent selection, has been largely unappreciated.
Negative genetic correlation for adult fitness between sexes reveals ontogenetic conflict in Drosophila.

Strong intersexual discord during development in the fruit-fly is demonstrated because of the expression of sexually antagonistic variation, with highly significant genotype-by-gender interaction variance measured for both adult and total fitness.
Experimental removal of sexual selection reverses intersexual antagonistic coevolution and removes a reproductive load.
The results indicate a potentially widespread cost of sexual selection caused by conflicts inherent to promiscuity, and suggest males evolved to be less harmful to their mates, and females evolved to been less resistant to male-induced harm.
Ecological and evolutionary insights from species invasions.
PERSPECTIVE: CHASE‐AWAY SEXUAL SELECTION: ANTAGONISTIC SEDUCTION VERSUS RESISTANCE
A model of sexual selection that leads to the evolution of exaggerated male display characters that is based on antagonistic coevolution between the sexes that is motivated by three lines of research: intersexual conflict with respect to mating, sensory exploitation, and the emergence of female resistance for male display traits is described.
The enemies within: intergenomic conflict, interlocus contest evolution (ICE), and the intraspecific Red Queen
It is concluded that antagonistic coevolution is common among loci that code for social interactions, and that it has broad evolutionary implications, especially in the context of speciation and sex chromosome evolution.
