  • Abstract Animal nuptial gifts display multitudinous forms, and such gifts are especially interesting because they sit at the intersection of sexual selection, foraging ecology, and life-history evolution. However, even though such gifts are likely to play key roles in sexual selection and conflict, remarkably little is known about the selective agents responsible for their origin and maintenance. In this chapter, we propose a classification scheme based on (1) how gifts are produced (endogenous… CONTINUE READING
