About this book

A major review and synthesis. The author describes the theory and its development, examines models, methods and empirical tests, and identifies unsolved problems. The rapidly growing study of sexual selection in plants is also reviewed.

Sexual Selection provides a masterly account of both the complex mathematical theory and the relevant data... [It] deserves to be widely read as a definitive summary of what we know about sexual selection and as a guide to what remains to be done. Trends in Ecology and Evolution
