    Klaus Reinhardt
    Department of Animal and Plant Sciences, University of Sheffield, Western Bank, UK
    Q Rev Biol 82:375-93. 2007
    ..I conclude that altering the sperm age distribution at any step during reproduction can be an origin of sexually selected traits, and may explain presently observed paternity variation without assuming genetic incompatibility of gametes...

    Klaus Reinhardt
    Department of Animal and Plant Sciences, University of Sheffield, Sheffield, United Kingdom
    Evolution 63:29-39. 2009
    ..Our results, therefore, suggest that males have increased mating success in a situation that females cannot avoid because it is naturally selected. Such "situation exploitation" of low resistance may be a common phenomenon...

    Department of Animal and Plant Sciences, University of Sheffield, Sheffield, UK
    Med Vet Entomol 24:46-54. 2010
