Darwin (1871) postulated two mechanisms that promote sexual selection: intrasexual competition and mate choice. Perhaps because of the ease with which it can be observed in nature, male-male competition has traditionally received most attention as the main force driving sexual selection. However, evidence is now mounting that female choice plays an important role in sexual selection in very diverse taxa (Bateson 1983). Much theoretical work has also been devoted to the evolution of female… Expand
