Macroecology of sexual selection in Am Nat
One of my most pleasant collaborations, with Glauco Machado, Rogelio Macías-Ordóñez and Solimary García Hernández, has recently been published in The American Naturalist. It is about a macroecological perspective of sexual selection, proposing an approach for large-scale (global!) variation in mating systems and sexual dimorphism. We used harvestmen (Arachnida: Opiliones) as a proof of concept of the proposed framework, and it all started with a chapter entitled 'The macroecology of harvestmen mating systems' published in 2014 in the book Sexual Selection: Insights from the Neotropics.
