Darwin's theory of sexual selection showed how such traits could be selected through competition for mates even if they were otherwise detrimental1. Flowering displays of plants often show a comparable degree of gaudiness and profligacy, but exploration of the role of sexual selection in plants has only just begun2–5. Bateman6 argued that sexual selection is caused by the… CONTINUE READING
