Although many theoretical and empirical studies have addressed the dynamics of sexual selection, little is known about the evolution of multiple sexual-selection mechanisms within the same system. I performed a qualitative comparative study of sexual behaviours in seven sympatric species of piophilid flies to identify and compare the apparent mechanisms of sexual selection operating in each system. In each of the seven species I observed several distinct types of male–male and male–female… CONTINUE READING
