Evolution of sexual dimorphism of wing shape in the Drosophila melanogaster subgroup


Sexual dimorphism of body size has been the subject of numerous studies, but few have examined sexual shape dimorphism (SShD) and its evolution. Allometry, the shape change associated with size variation, has been suggested to be a main component of SShD.
