  1. ncbi request reprint The ESS under spatial variation with applications to sex allocation
    S R Proulx
    Department of Biology, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah 84112, USA
    Theor Popul Biol 58:33-47. 2000
    ..These results are compared with results from exact matrix models and computer simulations, all of which show strong congruence...
  2. ncbi request reprint Allelic divergence precedes and promotes gene duplication
    Stephen R Proulx
    Center for Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, 5289 University of Oregon, Eugene, Oregon 97403, USA
    Evolution 60:881-92. 2006
    ..Thus, a solution to the paradox of the origin of organismal complexity via the expansion of gene families exists in the form of the deterministic spread of novel duplicates via natural selection...
  3. pmc Can behavioural constraints alter the stability of signalling equilibria?
    S R Proulx
    Department of Biology, 1210 University of Oregon, Eugene, OR 97403 1210, USA
    Proc Biol Sci 268:2307-13. 2001
    ..An example of signalling between mates is presented in order to demonstrate this equilibrium...
  4. ncbi request reprint Female choice via indicator traits easily evolves in the face of recombination and migration
    S R Proulx
    Department of Biology, University of Utah, Salt Lake City 84112, USA
    Evolution 55:2401-11. 2001
    ..Female choice reaches the highest levels for intermediate levels of heterogeneity, because at such levels of heterogeneity there is both a high risk and high cost of mismating...
  5. pmc Older males signal more reliably
    Stephen R Proulx
    Department of Zoology, University of Toronto, 25 Harbord Street, Toronto, ON, M5S 3G5, Canada
    Proc Biol Sci 269:2291-9. 2002
    ..This provides a novel rationale for female preference for older mates; older males reveal more information in their sexual displays...
  6. ncbi request reprint Does sex age you?
    Stephen R Proulx
    Center for Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of Oregon, Eugene, OR 97403, USA
    Sci Aging Knowledge Environ 2004:pe14. 2004
    ..If females cannot find and maintain mating pairs for long enough to replace themselves, the population will become extinct. This puts a lower limit on the levels of longevity that will be observed in nature...

    Center for Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of Oregon, Eugene, Oregon 97403 5289, USA
    Am Nat 165:147-62. 2005
    ..Because load induced through migration, segregation, developmental noise, and environmental variance is not mutation limited, each can cause strong selection for canalization...

    S R Proulx
    Center for Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of Oregon, Eugene, OR 97403 2364, USA
    J Evol Biol 17:924-30. 2004
    ..This allows the evolution of either female- or male-biased sex ratios depending on which sexual function is more variable...

    Brendan D O'Fallon
    Department of Biology, University of Utah, 257 South 1400 East, Salt Lake City, UT 84112, USA
    Proc Biol Sci 274:3159-64. 2007

    K J Yook
