Charles Darwin's (1871) treatnent of the topic of sexual selection was sometinrcs confused because he lackcd a gcneral framework within which to relate the variables he perceived to bc important: sexlinked inheritance, sex ratio at conception, differcntial mortality, parental carc, and the form ot the brecding system (monoganry, polygyny, polyandry, or promiscurry/. This confusion permitted othcrs to attcmpt to show that Darwin's tcrminology was inrprecise, that hc n]isinterpr(]ted thc function… Expand
SEXUAL SELECTION IN TOADS: THE ROLES OF FEMALE CHOICE AND MALE BODY SIZE
TLDR
The first extreme of sexual selection, competition among males, has been documented by field studies on baboons, dungflies, elephant seals, lizards, prairie chickens, and sage grouse and some biologists have doubted its importance to evolution. Expand
II Parental investment and sexual selection
Charles Darwin's (1871) treatment of lhe topic of sex ual selection was sometimes confused because he lacked a general framework within whidl to relate the variables he pcrccived to be important:Expand
Choosy But Not Chaste: Multiple Mating in Human Females
  • B. Scelza
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolutionary anthropology
  • 2013
TLDR
In brief, this work is best known for illuminating the typically male strategy of intrasexual competition and the typically female response of intersexual choice. Expand
Chapter 13 An ALife Investigation on the Origins of Dimorphic Parental Investments
TLDR
Support is found for all these alternatives for prior investment, desertion, paternal uncertainty, association with the offspring and chance dimorphism within the setting of an ALife simulation. Expand
Sexual selection: endless forms or tangled bank?
TLDR
A view of sexual selection is described that is considered a consensus view, and why behavioural and evolutionary ecologists choose to go beyond the evolution of fitness to look at individual traits at all is considered. Expand
The Optimal Number of Fathers
TLDR
This presumption of monandrous females coupled with males who ranged from monogamous to polygynous shaped the authors' reconstructions of early hominid mating systems. Expand
Darwin and sexual selection: One hundred years of misunderstanding.
  • M. Veuille
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Comptes rendus biologies
  • 2010
TLDR
In the modern context of Mendelian genetics, Darwin's sexual selection retrospectively appears as luminous an idea in its pure principle as natural selection, even though the mechanisms governing the evolution of sexual choice in animals remain largely unresolved. Expand
SEXUAL SELECTION BY FEMALE CHOICE IN POLYGYNOUS ANIMALS
TLDR
Over the last two decades a major resurgence of work on sexual selection has occurred and Evolutionists have reexamined Darwin's ideas and are now much more impressed by their cogency. Expand

  • R. Thornhill
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 1980
TLDR
The paucity of evidence for Darwinian female preference in nature remains an important problem in understanding the role of female choice in the evolution of male traits. Expand
SEXUAL SELECTION AND DIMORPHISM IN TWO DEMES OF A SYMBIOTIC, PAIR‐BONDING SNAPPING SHRIMP
  • N. Knowlton
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 1980
TLDR
Evidence for sexual selection in the snapping shrimp Alpheus armatus (Caridea, Alpheidae), an obligate symbiont of the Caribbean anemone Bartholomea annulata (Clarke, 1955) is provided. Expand
