Blanckenhorn, Wolf U., 2002: The evolution of body size and sexual size dimorphism. Body size is one of the most important quantitative traits under evolutionary scrutiny and varies tremendously among and within organisms. The majority of animals has two sexes, and females and males often differ in size (sexual size dimorphism: S...

Monroe, M.J.; South, S.H.; Alonzo, S.H., 2016: The evolution of fecundity is associated with female body size but not female-biased sexual size dimorphism among frogs. Sexual size dimorphism (SSD) is one of the most common ways in which males and females differ. Male-biased SSD (when males are larger) is often attributed to sexual selection favouring large males. When females are larger (female-biased SSD), it i...

In the species from the Mediterranean group, J. italica and J. nordmanni, large males and medium sized females are at an advantage and their sizes are positively assorted. These effects are due...

Sexual size dimorphism (SSD) varies in animals from male biased to female biased. The evolution of SSD is potentially influenced by a number of factors, such as territoriality, fecundity, and temporal breeding patterns (explosive vs. prolonged). I...

The ratio between lengths of digit II and IV (digit ratio 2D:4D) is a morphological feature that likely affects tetrapod locomotor performances in different microhabitats. Modifications of this trait may be triggered by changes in steroids concent...

Kratochvil, L.; Frynta, D., 2002: Body size, male combat and the evolution of sexual dimorphism in eublepharid geckos (Squamata: Eublepharidae). Lizards of the family Eublepharidae exhibit interspecific diversity in body size, sexual size dimorphism (SSD), head size dimorphism (HSD), occurrence of male combat, and presence of male precloacal pores. Hence, they offer an opportunity for test...
