    ..However, given the relative scarcity of empirical studies, it is premature to make conclusions about the role of sex chromosome linkage in the evolution of sexual dimorphism...

    Arild Husby
    Institute of Evolutionary Biology, School of Biological Sciences, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
    Evolution 64:2221-37. 2010

    Niclas Vallin
    Department of Ecology and Genetics, Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden
    Evolution 66:1167-79. 2012
