AbstractThe Pipridae comprise 52 species of manakins with a wide variety of courtship behaviours, ranging from solitary display, to traditional leks, to cooperative display. Long-tailed Manakins (Chiroxiphia linearis) exhibit an exploded lek-breeding system wherein two unrelated males cooperate to perform complex courtship displays for females. Our objectives in this study were to fully characterize the courtship display of Long-tailed Manakins, to evaluate the sequence and stereotypy of the… 
Variation within and between courts in visual components of Swallow-tailed Manakin (Chiroxiphia caudata) display
AbstractBirds are well known for displaying courtship exhibitions shaped by sexual selection that involve combinations of visual, motor, and acoustic components. Among such multifaceted exhibitions
Integrative Studies of Sexual Selection in Manakins, a Clade of Charismatic Tropical Birds.
TLDR
The results discussed at the manakin symposium highlight the remarkable genomic, behavioral, and physiological adaptations as well as the evolutionary causes and consequences of strong sexual selection pressures that are evident in manakins.
Social and environmental cues drive the intra-population variation in courtship behavior of a neotropical lekking bird
TLDR
Overall, the social context at the court was the strongest predictor of within-population variations in male courtship display, whereas light conditions only affected display duration.
Correlated evolution of acrobatic display and both neural and somatic phenotypic traits in manakins (Pipridae).
Brightly colored manakin (Aves: Pipridae) males are known for performing acrobatic displays punctuated by non-vocal sounds (sonations) in order to attract dull colored females. The complexity of the
Display behaviour, social organization and vocal repertoire of Blue‐backed Manakin Chiroxiphia pareola napensis in northwest Amazonia
TLDR
The Blue-backed Manakin is a widely distributed species with four recognised subspecies; however, most published information on display behaviour, social organisation and vocalisations are derived from an island population of one subspecies Chiroxiphia pareola atlantica.
Courtship Calls in Blue Tits Cyanistes caeruleus: Daily and Seasonal Occurrence and Link to Paternity
TLDR
The presence of the female inside the nestbox is monitored and the occurrence of courtship calls that are apparently not directed to the social mate are described, which relate to paternity loss in the male's own brood.
A Young Manakin Knows His Place: Evidence for an Age-Graded Dominance Hierarchy Among Long-Tailed Manakins
In lek-breeding systems where many males gather at display sites, males benefit from the establishment of dominance hierarchies to reduce intrasexual aggression and the associated risk of injuries.
Multimodal flight display of a neotropical songbird predicts social pairing but not extrapair mating success
TLDR
Investigating how male courtship and territory quality varied with social and extrapair paternity in the socially monogamous blue-black grassquit found that when selecting social mates, females favor higher-leaping males, an attribute associated with enhanced body condition that could indicate the capacity for better parenting and also be inherited by the offspring.
Male Aggregation in Dwarf Tyrant-Manakins and What It Tells Us about the Origin of Leks.

TLDR
Evidence for the active aggregation of males is more promising, suggesting that males may associate with other males on the basis of their vocal behavior, but the issue is confounded, however, by the observation that male call behavior appears to change with a change in social status.

COOPERATIVE DISPLAY AND LEKKING BEHAVIOR OF THE LANCE-TAILED MANAKIN (CHIROXIPHIA LANCEOLATA)
TLDR
The Lance-tailed Manakin display repertoire provides information useful in comparative analyses of the origin and evolution of display behavior within the manakin clade and in studies of the adaptive consequences of individual behavior within this species.

TLDR
Display sequences that include both a Jump Display and Solo Precopulatory Display are more likely to lead to copulation than those consisting of only one part, and the subordinates who help the dominant perform the dance are expending energy that increases his fitness without receiving any immediate benefit themselves.
Lek Structure and Male Display Repertoire of Blue-Crowned Manakins in Eastern Ecuador
TLDR
The lek structure, territory characteristics, vocalizations and behavioral display elements of the Blue-crowned Manakin (Lepidothrix coronata coronata) in eastern Ecuador are described, revealing a repertoire considerably more diverse than previously documented.
Female mate-searching strategies and behavioural correlates of copulation success in lekking long-tailed manakins (Chiroxiphia linearis)
TLDR
Insight is provided into mate choice in long-tailed manakins, revealing that females make complex decisions that have important fitness consequences, and that females may also influence the courtship behaviours of males.
The display repertoire of the band-tailed manakin (Pipra fasciicauda)
TLDR
It is suggested that the crucial selective force in developing lek behavior is an increase in female home-range size relative to the size of existing male territories, which may lead to a shift in male strategies from resource defense to self-advertisement.
Cooperation Under Sexual Selection: Age-Graded Changes in a Lekking Bird
TLDR
The results are consistent with the hypothesis that subdefinitive plumages in this species serve primarily as accurate indicators of age, which in turn largely determines status, and that males queue for positions in an age-based dominance system.
VOCAL REPERTOIRE OF THE LONG-TAILED MANAKIN AND ITS RELATION TO MALE-MALE COOPERATION'
TLDR
The responses of males to playback of six vocalizations indicated that the calls function as much in mediating cooperative inter- actions as in expressing male-male agonism.
LEKKING BEHAVIOR OF THE ROUND-TAILED MANAKIN
TLDR
An analysis of interaction outcomes failed to show clear dominance relationships among males, and the displays and sounds in the P. erythrocephala clade are compared from the perspective of understanding the evolution of display behavior in this group.
High-Speed Video Analysis Reveals Individual Variability in the Courtship Displays of Male Golden-Collared Manakins
TLDR
For the first time, the displays of male Golden-collared manakins in the forest of Panama are recorded with a high-speed camera that allows a time resolution 5–40 times higher than that of a standard video camera, and it is found that several elements of the displays differed significantly between individuals.
THE COURTSHIP DISPLAYS AND SOCIAL SYSTEM OF THE WHITE-RUFFED MANAKIN IN COSTA RICA
TLDR
It is concluded that C. leucorrhoa displays in dispersed leks as found by other authors for C. gutturalis may have a social function related to the establishment of a dominance hierarchy.
