    Evolution 59:200-15. 2005
    ..To my knowledge, these data provide the first direct evidence that species recognition and ecological adaptation operate in tandem, and that the interplay between these factors drives the evolution of mating signals in suboscine birds...

    J A Tobias
    Department of Zoology, Edward Grey Institute, University of Oxford, Oxford, UK
    J Evol Biol 22:623-36. 2009
    ..Overall, our results suggest that a synergism between natural selection and sexual selection may be widespread, but the processes underlying this pattern remain to be investigated...

    ..However, this conclusion may be undermined by taxonomic biases, sampling artifacts, and the sister-species method, all of which tend to underestimate diversification rates at low latitudes...

    ..Taken together, our results provide compelling evidence that social selection can act across species boundaries to drive convergent or parallel evolution in taxa competing for space and resources...
