Darwin's theory of organic evolution identifies two forms of selection that occur in the wild: natural selection, involving the adaptation of a population to its biotic and abiotic environment, and sexual selection, resulting from competition for reproductive access to the other sex (27, 28). Sexual selection arises through a direct struggle between members of the same sex (typically males) and through the mating preferences of one sex for the other (typically females for males). Darwin… 
Sexual Selection and Imitation: Females Copy the Mate Choice of Others
TLDR
Female copying behavior during mate choice in the Trinidadian guppy is examined, which shows that female mate copying behavior increases the variance in male reproductive success and thus the potential for sexual selection.
THE DARWIN‐FISHER THEORY OF SEXUAL SELECTION IN MONOGAMOUS BIRDS
TLDR
Results show that conspicuous male traits that decrease survival can evolve but suggest that the extent of maladaptive evolution is greatly limited relative to what is possible in a polygynous mating system for two reasons.
Sexual Selection and Mating Systems: Contributions from a Neotropical Passerine Model
The process of sexual selection results from mating advantages gained when members of one sex, usually males, compete for access to the other sex, and when competitors in better condition or bearing
Interaction between natural and sexual selection during the evolution of mate recognition

TLDR
This experiment demonstrated that the interaction between natural and sexual selection is critical in determining the direction and magnitude of the evolutionary response of the mate recognition system.
Measuring natural and sexual selection on breeding values of male display traits in Drosophila serrata
Fundamental to many theories of sexual selection is the expectation that sexual traits, which males use in an attempt to increase mating success, confer costs as well as benefits to individual males.
New Horizons in Sexual Selection Research
One of the most important decisions that a sexually reproducing organism must make in its lifetime is with whom shall it mate? From an evolutionary perspective, the importance of this decision is
The role of body size on the outcome of mating interactions in Drosophila melanogaster
TLDR
It is found that absolute body size Differences affected length of courtship and that relative body size differences affected time to courtship initiation, and whether individual preference variation in females had a genetic component had yet to be determined experimentally.
How can sexual selection promote population divergence
TLDR
The conclusion is that sexual selection acts in a somewhat indirect fashion, more by enhancing previous evolutio...
MODELS OF SEXUAL SELECTION ON A QUANTITATIVE GENETIC TRAIT WHEN PREFERENCE IS ACQUIRED BY SEXUAL IMPRINTING
The evolution of a quantitative genetic trait under stabilizing viability selection and sexual selection is modeled for a polygynous species in which female mating preferences are acquired by sexual
The role of male contest competition over mates in speciation
TLDR
It is argued that sexual selection through male contest competition can affect speciation in ways other than mate choice and the role ofmale contest competition in speciation remains largely scientifically unexplored.

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.
SEXUAL SELECTION AND SEXUAL DIMORPHISM IN MOTTLED SCULPINS
TLDR
The nature of female choice in this species and its relationship to sexual dimorphism in body size are described and the evidence indicates that size per se is the crucial issue.
THE EVOLUTIONARY EFFECTS OF MATE SELECTION
TLDR
Mate choice is defined to include all instances where there is differential mating success in one sex due to preferences exhibited by the other sex, and includes preferences based on characters conferring genetic benefit to the young, on phenotypic characters conferting a more immediatebenefit to the chooser, or even on characters external to the chosen individual.
Evolution of Female Choice and Male Parental Investment in Polygynous Species: The Demise of the "Sexy Son"
TLDR
These models address the "sexy son" hypothesis of Weatherhead and Robertson (1979), which contends that selection can create an equilibrium at which females on the average mate with certain attractive types of males that give them inferior material resources and therefore decrease the females' immediate reproductive success.
On Mating Systems and Sexual Selection
TLDR
The fact that sympatric hybridization is more frequent among non-monogamous species than among those having a monogamous mating system is attributed in part to the higher sex "drive" and the lower thresholds of response of males to feminine releasers, which arise through strong sexual selection in polygamous and promiscuous mating systems.
Sexual selection, natural selection and quality advertisement
TLDR
Both mating advantage and mortality disadvantage increase with ornament size, and balance at its optimal development, and if a given adornment reduces survival most in low quality phenotypes, the optimum increases with phenotypic quality.
Sexual selection and cycling parasites: A simulation study of Hamilton's hypothesis*
TLDR
The mechanism was studied by simulating a genetic model consisting of three diallelic haploid loci and showed that genes for increase of male secondary sexual traits and the mating preference for them will not spread when rare and if mating preferences for extreme male traits become sufficiently common, then a “runaway process” leading to increase of the male trait and the preference is possible.

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.
MALE RARITY OR NOVELTY, FEMALE CHOICE BEHAVIOR, AND SEXUAL SELECTION IN THE GUPPY, POECILIA RETICULATA PETERS (PISCES: POECILIIDAE)

  • 1977
TLDR
One type of sexual selection, frequency-dependent mate selection (i.e. rare male advantage), will be considered since it has direct bearing on the present study and it only remains to establish the role of the female in choosing among competing males.
SEXUAL SELECTION AND THE EVOLUTION OF SONG
TLDR
The question of why listeners have evolved to respond to song in the contexts of female choice and male contest is examined, and ideas and evidence on the evolution of relationships betweensong and female choice, and between song and success in male contests are reviewed.
