Alternative mechanisms of intersexual selection yield distinct macroevolutionary predictions about the magnitude and patterns of trait and repertoire diversity in clades exposed to persistent intersexual selection. Phylogenetic analyses of the evolution of lek display elements and secondary sexual plumages in manakins (Aves: Pipridae) were conducted to test these predictions and determine which sexual selection mechanisms may have had a predominant role in the evolution of traits within a clade… Expand
Phylogenetic evidence for multiple losses of a sexually selected character in phrynosomatid lizards
  • J. Wiens
  • Biology
  • Proceedings of the Royal Society of London. Series B: Biological Sciences
  • 1999
TLDR
A phylogenetic approach was used to examine macro–evolutionary patterns of change in sexually dichromatic display coloration among 130 taxa of phrynosomatid lizards and showed repeated losses of sexual dimorphism, which occur through losses of conspicuous male coloration or gains of conspicuous female coloration. Expand
Patterns of divergence in the morphology of ceratopsian dinosaurs: sympatry is not a driver of ornament evolution
TLDR
The prediction of the species recognition hypothesis, and thus the idea that ornamentation evolved as a species recognition mechanism, has no statistical support among known ceratopsians. Expand
A Macroevolutionary Perspective on Multiple Sexual Traits in the Phasianidae (Galliformes)
TLDR
It is clear that many different selective processes have been involved in the evolution of sexual signals in phasianids, including six intersexual signals and three indicators of competitive ability. Expand
Biomechanical Diversity of Mating Structures among Harvestmen Species Is Consistent with a Spectrum of Precopulatory Strategies
TLDR
It is suggested that precopulatory features within species reflect different co-occurring levels of solicitation and antagonism, and that gradualistic evolutionary pathways exist between extreme strategies. Expand
DIVERSITY IN THE WEAPONS OF SEXUAL SELECTION: HORN EVOLUTION IN THE BEETLE GENUS ONTHOPHAGUS (COLEOPTERA: SCARABAEIDAE)
TLDR
This work uses partial sequences from four nuclear and three mitochondrial genes to develop a phylogenetic hypothesis for a worldwide sample of 48 species from the dung beetle genus Onthophagus and characterize the evolutionary radiation of beetle horns. Expand
DIVERSITY IN THE WEAPONS OF SEXUAL SELECTION: HORN EVOLUTION IN THE BEETLE GENUS ONTHOPHAGUS (COLEOPTERA: SCARABAEIDAE)
Abstract Both ornaments and weapons of sexual selection frequently exhibit prolific interspecific diversity of form. Yet, most studies of this diversity have focused on ornaments involved with femaleExpand
Diversidade de piprídeos (aves: pipridae) amazônicos: seleção sexual, ecologia e evolução
TLDR
Sexual selection is suggested to have resulted in great morphological and behavioral complexity in the family Pipridae, but also to have contributed to the differentiation of life histories among different evolutionary lineages. Expand
Plumage Evolution in the Oropendolas and Caciques: Different Divergence Rates in Polygynous and Monogamous Taxa
TLDR
Reconstructing the evolution of individual color patches on a molecular phylogeny showed that overall color patterns have changed much more rapidly in oropendolas, which comprise two groups that evolved polygyny independently, than in caciques, which are predominantly monogamous. Expand
Crest evolution in newts: implications for reconstruction methods, sexual selection, phenotypic plasticity and the origin of novelties
TLDR
The correlated evolution of crests and courtship behaviour is demonstrated and it is shown that species with larger numbers of crest‐related traits have larger repertoires of behaviours, and that phenotypically plastic morphological traits can be maintained over long macroevolutionary timescales. Expand
Recent chapters of Neotropical history overlooked in phylogeography: Shallow divergence explains phenotype and genotype uncoupling in Antilophia manakins
TLDR
This study used a subgenomic data set of 2,386 ultraconserved elements to explore genomewide divergence between two species of Antilophia manakins, and revealed clear population structure that matches the two phenotypes, supporting the idea that smaller data sets lacked the power to detect this recent divergence event.

Recurrent origin of a sexually selected trait in Xiphophorus fishes inferred from a molecular phylogeny
TLDR
A molecular phylogeny of Xiphophorus is presented which differs from the traditional one: it indicates that the sword originated and was lost repeatedly, thus questioning the applicability of the pre-existing bias hypothesis as an explanation for the evolution of this sexually selected trait. Expand
Testing Pattern Predictions of Sexual Selection: A Frog Example
TLDR
Historical transformation analysis and comparative performance tests suggest that this functional complex of fangs, hypertrophied jaw muscles, enlarged heads, and males larger than females of the genus Rana evolved as a result of sexual selection. Expand
Models of speciation by sexual selection on polygenic traits.
  • R. Lande
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America
  • 1981
TLDR
The models elucidate genetic mechanisms that can initiate or contribute to rapid speciation by sexual isolation and divergence of secondary sexual characters in polygamous species. Expand
SEXUAL DIMORPHISM, SEXUAL SELECTION, AND ADAPTATION IN POLYGENIC CHARACTERS
  • R. Lande
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 1980
TLDR
Sexual dimorphism may result from natural and/or sexual selection, and systems of mating are often thought to evolve in response to ecological pressures, although mating preferences may be self-reinforcing. Expand
Female Preference Predates the Evolution of the Sword in Swordtail Fish
TLDR
The evolution of the sword in the swordtail clade was a consequence of selection arising from a preexisting bias in the female information-processing system arising from sources independent of sexual selection. Expand
SEXUAL SELECTION AND THE EVOLUTION OF FEMALE CHOICE
  • M. Kirkpatrick
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 1982
TLDR
The primary conclusion of the present paper is that the initial selective advantages for the female preference assumed by Fisher, O'Donald, and many later authors are not necessary for either the origin or subsequent elaboration of mating preferences for traits associated with reduced survivorship. Expand
The Phylogenetic Study of Adaptive Zones: Has Phytophagy Promoted Insect Diversification?
TLDR
The adaptive-zone hypothesis predicts that if multiple lineages have invaded a new adaptive zone, they should be consistently more diverse than their (equally old) sister groups, when the latter retain the more primitive way of life. Expand
EVOLUTION OF CONDITION‐DEPENDENT SEX ORNAMENTS AND MATING PREFERENCES: SEXUAL SELECTION BASED ON VIABILITY DIFFERENCES
  • M. Andersson
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 1986
TLDR
The possibility that the evolution of mating preferences and secondary sex traits can be based on heritable differences in viability is examined with a three‐locus model, based on a monogamous mating system that precludes such a Fisherian mating advantage being required. Expand
Sexual selection for sensory exploitation in the frog Physalaemus pustulosus
TLDR
Female basilar papilla tuning is biased toward lower-than-average frequencies in the 'chuck' portion of the male's call, explaining female preference for the lower-frequency chucks produced by larger males. Expand
CLADISTIC TESTS OF ADAPTATIONAL HYPOTHESES
TLDR
A cladistic viewpoint provides an historical definition of adaptation and an operational ecological test for evolutionary adaptations, and useful to distinguish whether hypotheses about characters identify selection as facilitating: 1) the origin of a character; 2) its maintenance; 3) neither; or 4) both.
