- Bateman in nature: predation on offspring reduces the potential for sexual selectionJOHN BYERS
Department of Biological Sciences, University of Idaho, Moscow, ID 83844 3051, USA
Science 338:802-4. 2012..These results support the validity of the Bateman relationship, yet they also demonstrate that environmental or extrinsic influences can limit the potential for sexual selection...
- A large cost of female mate sampling in pronghornJohn A Byers
Department of Biological Sciences, University of Idaho, Moscow, Idaho 83844, USA
Am Nat 166:661-8. 2005....
- Good genes sexual selection in natureJohn A Byers
Department of Biological Sciences, University of Idaho, Moscow, ID 83844, USA
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 103:16343-5. 2006..Furthermore, female choice may be important and unrecognized as a force that can lower population genetic load...
- Genetic versus census estimators of the opportunity for sexual selection in the wildStacey J Dunn
Department of Biological Sciences, University of Idaho, P O Box 443051, Moscow, Idaho 83844, USA
Am Nat 179:451-62. 2012..For most species, behavioral data are not perfectly accurate and therefore will be an insufficient alternative to using multigenerational pedigrees to quantify sexual selection...
- Areawide models comparing synchronous versus asynchronous treatments for control of dispersing insect pestsJohn A Byers
Western Cotton Research Laboratory, USDA ARS, 4135 East Broadway Road, Phoenix, Arizona 85040 8830, USA
J Econ Entomol 98:1763-73. 2005..The synchronous method is more efficient because population refugia are precluded from which dispersal could reintroduce insects...
- Simulation of mating disruption and mass trapping with competitive attraction and camouflageJohn A Byers
US Arid Land Agricultural Research Center, USDA ARS, 21881 North Cardon Lane, Maricopa, AZ 85238, USA
Environ Entomol 36:1328-38. 2007..More precise measurements of the above parameters in the field are needed before the models can precisely predict outcomes of mating disruption and mass trapping...
