Institute of Zoology, Evolutionary Ecology Division, University of Bern, Baltzerstrasse 6, 3012 Bern, Switzerland
Oecologia 137:148-52. 2003..The experiment further suggests that paternally derived carotenoids are the most important determinants of nestling plumage colour...

Department of Biodiversity and Evolutionary Biology, Museo Nacional de Ciencias Naturales MNCN CSIC, Madrid, Spain
J Evol Biol 21:246-55. 2008..Consequently, to optimize fitness, males should trade their investment between the traits, which are important for inter- and intra-sexual selection...

- Operational sex ratio, sexual conflict and the intensity of sexual selectionPatrick S Fitze
Museo Nacional de Ciencias Naturales MNCN CSIC, Department of Biodiversity and Evolutionary Biology, c Jose Gutierrez Abascal 2, Madrid 28006, Spain
Ecol Lett 11:432-9. 2008..This suggests that the costs of breeding, but not the operational sex ratio, correctly predicted the strength of sexual selection...
- No evidence for survival selection on carotenoid-based nestling coloration in great tits (Parus major)P S Fitze
Behavioural Ecology Group, Department of Zoology, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK
J Evol Biol 19:618-24. 2006..This indicates that the carotenoid-based coloration of nestling great tits is currently not under natural selection and it suggests that past selection pressures or selection acting on correlated traits may have led to its evolution...
- Conflict over multiple-partner mating between males and females of the polygynandrous common lizardsPatrick S Fitze
Laboratoire Fonctionnement et Evolution des Systemes Ecologiques, Ecole Normale Superieure, Paris, France
Evolution 59:2451-9. 2005..The results are also consistent with a sexual conflict in which male behaviors are harmful to females...

Laboratoire Fonctionnement et Evolution des Systemes Ecologiques, CNRS UMR 7625, Universite Pierre et Marie Curie, Case 237, 7 quai St Bernard, 75005 Paris, France
Ecology 89:56-64. 2008..These results support recent empirical findings showing that the direct costs of mating are not outweighed by indirect benefits...

Laboratoire Fonctionnement et Evolution des Systemes Ecologiques, Universite Pierre et Marie Curie, 7, quai Saint Bernard, 75005 Paris, France
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 104:9703-8. 2007..Because interactions between relatives are likely to affect the ability of a species to track habitat modifications, kin-based dispersal should be considered in the study of invasion dynamics and metapopulation functioning...
- Female common lizards (Lacerta vivipara) do not adjust their sex-biased investment in relation to the adult sex ratioJ F Le Galliard
Laboratoire Fonctionnement et Evolution des Systemes Ecologiques, Universite Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris
J Evol Biol 18:1455-63. 2005..Our results thus contradict the predictions of adaptive models and challenge the idea that facultative investment in the rare sex might be a mechanism regulating the population sex ratio...
- Experimental enhancement of corticosterone levels positively affects subsequent male survivalJ Cote
Laboratoire Fonctionnement et Evolution des Systemes Ecologiques, Universite Pierre et Marie Curie, quai Saint Bernard, Batiment A, Paris, France
Horm Behav 49:320-7. 2006..This suggests that the production of corticosterone as a response to a stressor may be an adaptive mechanism that even controls survival...

Laboratoire Fonctionnement et Evolution des Systemes Ecologiques, Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, Unite Mixte de Recherche 7625, Ecole Normale Superieure, Paris, France
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 102:18231-6. 2005..In general, such an "evolutionary trap" toward extinction threatens populations in which there is a substantial mating cost for females, and environmental changes or management practices skew the ASR toward males...
