  1. ncbi request reprint Female mate preference and sexual conflict: females prefer males that have had fewer consorts
    W Edwin Harris
    Faculty of Life Sciences, Michael Smith Building, University of Manchester, Oxford Road, Manchester M13 9PT, United Kingdom
    Am Nat 165:S64-71. 2005
    ..This is an under-studied phenomenon that could help explain individual variation in female mating preferences...
  2. ncbi request reprint The maintenance of heritable variation through social competition
    W Edwin Harris
    Faculty of Life Sciences, The University of Manchester, Michael Smith Building, Oxford Road, Manchester M13 9PT, UK
    Evolution 62:337-47. 2008
    ..Our results provide a mechanism for the maintenance of heritable variation in natural populations and suggest an area for research into the importance of competition in the genetic architecture of fitness related traits...
  3. ncbi request reprint The capture of heritable variation for genetic quality through social competition
    Jason B Wolf
    Faculty of Life Sciences, The University of Manchester, Oxford Road, Manchester, UK
    Genetica 134:89-97. 2008
    ..Here we provide a general introduction to the concept of competition dependence and briefly introduce two models to demonstrate the potential evolutionary consequences of competition-dependent trait expression...
  4. ncbi request reprint Constraints on evolution and postcopulatory sexual selection: trade-offs among ejaculate characteristics
    Patricia J Moore
    School of Biological Sciences, University of Manchester, Manchester M13 9PT, United Kingdom
    Evolution 58:1773-80. 2004
    ..Fully describing the genetic relationships among traits that perform as an integrated unit helps us understand how functional relationships constrain or facilitate the evolution of the complex structure that is the ejaculate...
  5. pmc Is a decline in offspring quality a necessary consequence of maternal age?
    Patricia J Moore
    School of Biological Sciences, 3 614 Stopford Building, University of Manchester, Oxford Road, Manchester M13 9PT, UK
    Proc Biol Sci 270:S192-4. 2003
    ..Thus, while maternal age effects may be important aspects of ageing in some systems, the generality and overall importance for theories of ageing remain unclear...
  6. pmc Reproductive investment when mate quality varies: differential allocation versus reproductive compensation
    W Edwin Harris
    Faculty of Life Sciences, University of Manchester, Michael Smith Building, Oxford Road, Manchester M13 9PT, UK
    Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci 364:1039-48. 2009
    ..Thus, the female's age and body condition should be important factors mediating DA and RC, which may help to explain the equivocal results of empirical studies...
