  1. 1. Sexual Conflict and Gene Expression in Drosophila melanogaster

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Paolo Innocenti; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Sexual conflict; sexual selection; male-female coevolution; gene expression; transcriptome; microarrays; sexual dimorphism; Drosophila; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi; Biologi med inriktning mot zooekologi; Biology with specialization in Animal Ecology; Biology with specialization in Evolutionary Genetics; Biologi med inriktning mot evolutionär genetik;

    Abstract : Sexual conflict is broadly defined as a conflict between the evolutionary interests of the two sexes. Depending on the genetic architecture of the traits involved, it can occur at the level of male-female interactions or take the form of selection acting to change the mean of a shared trait against the sign of its genetic correlation.

  3. 3. Sexual Selection and Adaptation to Novel Environments

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ivain Martinossi-Allibert; Uppsala universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Sexual selection; Environmental change; Sexual conflict; Environmental stress; Adaptation; Adaptive landscape; Biologi med inriktning mot zooekologi; Biology with specialization in Animal Ecology;

    Abstract : The work included in this thesis aims at exploring the environmental sensitivity of benefits and costs of sexual selection through a combined empirical and theoretical effort, to increase our understanding of the impact of environmental change on sexually reproducing populations.Can sexual selection promote adaptation to novel environments? Sexual selection for good genes should accelerate adaptation by granting higher reproductive success to individuals of high genetic quality. READ MORE

    Abstract : This thesis examines parental condition, how it is traded off against reproduction and how it is displayed in a secondary sexual trait. The studies were performed on nest-box breeding collared flycatchers Ficedula albicollis on the island of Gotland, in the Baltic Sea. READ MORE
