Sexual dimorphism in epicuticular compounds despite similar sexual selection in sex role-reversed seed beetles.


Sexual selection imposed by mating preferences is often implicated in the evolution of both sexual dimorphism and divergence between species in signalling traits. Epicuticular compounds (ECs) are important signalling traits in insects and show extensive variability among and within taxa. Here, we investigate whether variation in the multivariate EC profiles… (More)
