The Evolution of Genetic Bandwagoning
TLDR
Genetic bandwagoning constitutes a novel mechanism for the evolution of cooperation that uses a combination of resonation and reservation, including the phenotypic cooccurrences of robust defenses against parasites and depressive symptoms.
Relative costs and benefits of alternative reproductive phenotypes at different temperatures – genotype-by-environment interactions in a sexually selected trait
TLDR
A male genotype that is associated with the expression of a SST interacted with temperature in determining male reproductive success, which caused an elaborate SST to evolve in different directions depending on the thermal environment.
Adaptive significance of the prolonged diapause in the western Mediterranean lycaenid butterfly Tomares ballus (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae)
TLDR
The adaptive value of this strategy is discussed in relation to the effects of adverse and unpredictable weather during the flight period of the butterfly, intra-guild competition, parasitoids and changes in habitat quality, which may also be exhibited by other species of Mediterranean lycaenids.
Sexual Selection and Mate Choice: Insights from Neutralist Perspectives
TLDR
Alternative hypotheses for the evolution of secondary sexual characteristics that are consistent with the prevalence of purifying selection rather than positive selection in most populations are discussed.
Testing the Hamilton-Zuk hypothesis: past, present, and future.
TLDR
How the use of high-throughput sequencing datasets available from modern genomic approaches might improve the ability to test a good-genes model of sexual selection in which genetic variation can be maintained when females prefer ornaments that indicate resistance to parasites is discussed.
Life history evolution in a bivoltine butterfly
TLDR
This thesis focuses on the evolution of life history of the model spec and shows how selection pressures may differ between different generations of the same species.
Female mate-searching strategies and behavioural correlates of copulation success in lekking long-tailed manakins (Chiroxiphia linearis)
TLDR
Insight is provided into mate choice in long-tailed manakins, revealing that females make complex decisions that have important fitness consequences, and that females may also influence the courtship behaviours of males.
Timing of Male Sex Pheromone Biosynthesis in a Butterfly – Different Dynamics under Direct or Diapause Development
TLDR
This study shows that time-stress changes the timing in biosynthesis of the complete pheromone between generations, and underpins the importance of understanding resource allocation and the physiological basis of life history traits.

Aggressiveness, Territoriality, and Sexual Behavior in Field Crickets (Orthoptera: Gryllidae)
TLDR
Groups of adult male field crickets caged in small arenas form essentially linear dominance hierarchies which are stable for short periods of time and can be described in terms of several characteristics.
Fertility of Eggs Produced on Territories of Vasectomized Red-Winged Blackbirds
TLDR
To circumvent the problems inherent in the development of an effective chemosterilant and to insure that each treated male was sterile, surgically sterilized territorial males by vasectomy are presented here, along with discussions of their possible implications.
Intraspecific Intrusions into Nests of Spawning Longear Sunfish (Pisces: Centrarchidae)
TLDR
Northern longear sunfish breed in colonies of closely-spaced nests, each defended by a mature male, and the main function of nest intrusion by females is eating eggs; by males it is apparently the fertilization of eggs in another male's nest.
Movements and Flock Stratification Within a Population of Blackcocks in Scotland
TLDR
The primary objective of the study was to obtain specific information on the home range and relative mobility of black grouse (Lyrurus tetrix (L.)) at different times of year, and new information was also discovered about the social structure of theblack grouse population.
Territories, Multiple Nest Building, and Polygyny in the Long-Billed Marsh Wren
THE problem of natural selection for polygyny in a bird species with a 1: 1 sex ratio has received considerable attention in earlier papers (Verner, 1963, 1964; Verner and Willson, 1966). Briefly it
INSECT TERRITORIALITY AND ITS EVOLUTION: POPULATION STUDIES OF DESERT GRASSHOPPERS ON CREOSOTE BUSHES
TLDR
Results are presented of observations and experiments on populations of Larrea-inhabiting grasshoppers occurring in North and South American deserts and general features of territoriality in relation to distribution and density in insects are discussed.
