The dark skin of tropical peoples is likely to be an adaptation to the strong ultraviolet (UV) radiation near the equator, perhaps protecting against sunburn or degradation of folate. By contrast, the adaptive value of light skin is questionable....

Seabirds exhibit a range of sexual size dimorphism (SSD) that includes both male-biased (males > females) and female-biased SSD (males< females). Here we use phylogenetic comparative methods to test the selective processes that may influence...

Male snakes typically have longer tails relative to body length than females, but the extent of this dimorphism varies among species. Three hypothesis have been suggested to explain tial dimorphism. The Morphological Constraint Hypothesis proposes...

Sexual dimorphism is common in lizards, with the most consistently dimorphic traits being head size and trunk le...
