  2. 2. The Evolution of Sexually Homologous Ornaments Selection via Male Mate Choice Coinciding with Male-Male Competition in a Neotropical Mosquito

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; sexual selection; Sabethes cyaneus; Diptera; Culicidae; mosquito; mutual ornamentation; sexual selection; mutual mate choice; male mate choice; female ornament; ecology; animal behaviour; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology Ethology and behavioural ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestrisk; limnisk och marin ekologi Etologi och beteendeekologi; Zooekologi; Animal Ecology;

    Sammanfattning : The evolution of elaborate male ornaments via sexual selection is well-understood while the selective pressures acting on female ornaments remains unresolved. Female ornaments in species with strong sexual selection on the male homologue of the ornament were originally thought to result from an intersexual genetic correlation. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Könsskillnadens estetik? Om konst och konstskapande i svensk hemslöjd på 1920- och 1990-talen

    Detta är en avhandling från Nordiska museets förlag

    Sammanfattning : The main objective of this PhD thesis, "An Aesthetics of Sexual Difference? On Art and Artistry in Swedish Handicraft of the 1920s and 1990s", is to investigate the field of handicraft in relation to a wider field of cultural production. Its aim is to contribute to a mapping of interrelated outlines of handicraft and art based on empirical studies of artistic creation in two local Swedish handicraft organizations during the modernism of the 1920s and the postmodernism of the 1990s.

  4. 4. Female coloration, egg carotenoids and reproductive success: gobies as a model system

    Detta är en avhandling från NTNU

    Författare :P. Andreas Svensson; [2007]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Akvatisk ekologi; Aquatic Ecology; Evolutionary Biology; Evolutionsbiologi;

    Sammanfattning : In two-spotted gobies (Gobiusculus flavescens), females develop an orange belly as they approach sexual maturity. Toward the end of the single breeding season, males become rare and females compete for spawnings. Nest-holding males then prefer females with more colourful bellies and this trait has been suggested to act as a female ornament. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Fishing for Females Sensory Exploitation in the Swordtail Characin

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Mirjam Amcoff; Uppsala universitet.; [2013]

    Sammanfattning : Mate choice plays an important role in sexual selection and speciation. The evolution of mate choice is intriguing in cases where choosy individuals gain little except for genetic material from the mate and where the trait used as a criterion for the choice is costly to its bearer.
