Cool Sexual Selection and GxE

Most of the time in nature, males have the fancy costumes, intended to draw female attention and to intimidate other males. Zahavi and Zahavi wrote a book about such things. So did Helena Cronin and a generation that followed her.

Scott Sloan of WLW, 700AM, Cincinnati, has a website,, and alongside a lot of fun, a photographic lesson about the interaction of opportunities and genes.

Take a look. Give a thought….
