    Am Nat 174:515-25. 2009
    ..The key determinants of the honesty and dynamics of sexual signaling are the condition dependency of male survival, the initial frequency distribution of nutritional condition in the male population, and the cost of signaling...

    Division of Environmental and Evolutionary Biology, University of Glasgow, Glasgow G12 8QQ, UK
    Proc Biol Sci 275:2515-20. 2008

    Marion Petrie
    School of Clinical Medical Sciences, University of Newcastle, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK
    Genetica 135:7-11. 2009
    ..This study adds to the building body of evidence that high levels of additive genetic variance can exist in secondary sexual traits under directional selection, but further emphasizes the main problem of what maintains this variation...
