Sexual size dimorphism in shorebirds, gulls, and alcids: the influence of sexual and natural selection


Sexual size dimorphism in shorebirds, gulls, and alcids: the influence of sexual and natural selection



Evolution; International Journal of Organic Evolution 54(4): 1404-1413



ISSN/ISBN: 0014-3820

PMID: 11005306

DOI: 10.1111/j.0014-3820.2000.tb00572.x

The significance of both sexual and natural selection in the evolution of sexual size dimorphism in Charadrii was investigated. The results indicate strongly that sexual selection has been a major influence on sexual size dimorphism in Charadrii but do not support divergence in the use of feeding resources while breeding.
