    Evolution 55:994-1001. 2001
    ..Mating benefits rather than mating costs may be common in many animals, particularly in species where female mate choice has a larger effect on male reproductive success than does the outcome of sperm competition...

    William E Wagner
    School of Biological Sciences, University of Nebraska, Lincoln, Nebraska 68588 0118, USA
    Evolution 57:2054-66. 2003
    ..Finally, there was a negative phenotypic correlation between male chirp rate and chirp duration, suggesting that females may have to trade off the life span and reproduction benefits when selecting a mate...

    William E Wagner
    School of Biological Sciences, University of Nebraska, Lincoln, Nebraska 68588 0118, USA
    Evolution 61:617-22. 2007
    ..These results suggest that females may give priority to the reproductive benefits provided by males that produce higher chirp rates...

    William E Wagner
    School of Biological Sciences, University of Nebraska, Lincoln, NE 68588 0118, USA
    Biol Lett 3:379-81. 2007
    ..This type of conditional female re-mating may be a widespread mechanism that penalizes males that cheat on direct benefits...

    Amanda E Tolle
    School of Biological Sciences, University of Nebraska, Lincoln, Nebraska 68588 0118, USA
    Evolution 65:283-94. 2011
    ..As a result, female choice for direct benefits may be difficult, particularly in heterogeneous environments, unless females can assess the environmental histories of males...

    ..Overall, our results suggest that female association costs have the potential to shape the evolution of female mating preferences...
