Sexual selection has been proposed to increase genetic variation for condition-dependent ornaments. The condition capture model predicts the genetic variance for a sexually selected trait from the genetic variance in condition and the slope of the relationship between the ornament and condition. Assuming that body size re£ects condition we assess the e¤cacy of this model using six species of stalk-eyed £ies (Diopsidae). Prior evidence indicates that male eye span exhibits strong condition… CONTINUE READING
