In recent years carotenoids have become increasingly important in the study of sexual selection. Endler (1980) found that the colour pattern diversity and conspicuousness of males of a population of guppies (Poecilia reticulata) increased after a few generations without predation. He argued that males, emancipated from the constraints of predation, were able to respond better to sexual selection brought about by female preference for colourful males. He subsequently (Endler 1983) showed that in… CONTINUE READING
