    John M McNamara
    Department of Mathematics, University of Bristol, University Walk, Bristol BS8 1TW, UK
    Proc Biol Sci 276:953-60. 2009
    ..Due to the mutual feedback between coyness and helpfulness in our model, alternatively stable evolutionary outcomes (with or without coyness) are possible under broad conditions. We also discuss alternative interpretations of coyness...
  3. ncbi request reprint Sexually selected traits evolve positive allometry when some matings occur irrespective of the trait
    Lutz Fromhage
    Department of Biological and Environmental Science, University of Jyvaskyla, P O Box 35, 40014 Jyvaskyla, Finland
    Evolution 68:1332-8. 2014
    ..We predict the strongest positive allometry when males typically (but not always) compete in large groups, and when trait differences decisively determine the outcome of competitive interactions. ..

    Lutz Fromhage
    Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences, University of Jyväskylä P O Box 35, 40014, Jyvaskyla, Finland
    Ecol Evol 2:2577-87. 2012
    ..We encourage empirical tests for the existence of conditional monogyny in all species where monogyny occurs in the absence of strict morphological constraints that would make it obligatory...

    School of Biological Sciences, University of Bristol, Woodland Road, Bristol, BS8 1UG, United Kingdom
    Evolution 63:684-94. 2009
    ..These results suggest that directional preferences for heterozygous or outbred mates could evolve and be maintained in finite populations in the absence of direct fitness benefits, suggesting a novel resolution to the lek paradox...

    Nature 451:189-92. 2008
    ..Because our model does not invoke complex mechanisms such as negotiation behaviour, it can be applied to a wide range of species. The results suggest an important role of lifespan in the evolution of cooperation...
