Sexual conflict in ecological context

Sexual conflict – where the sexes have different evolutionary interests – is thought to be ubiquitous. Theory for sexual conflict predicts that male and female sexual armaments should coevolve, often resulting in a sexual arms race. However, examples of sexual arms races are scarce, and even in the best-studied cases, alternative hypotheses – including intersex genetic correlations, ecologically-driven divergence, and neutral evolution in sexual traits – have not been tested. I will evaluate how these other processes contribute to a putative sexual arms race in water striders.
