1. In addition to genetic drift, both natural and sexual selection may be responsible for interspecific differences in male and female size and coloration. Comparative methods were used to analyse the patterns of dimorphism in the Anseriformes (wildfowl) in relation to mating patterns, nest placement, insularity and number of closely related, sympatric species. 2. The following predictions were tested about the evolution of dimorphism: (a) that evolutionary changes are more common in male than… CONTINUE READING
