Bateman's principles and the measurement of sexual selection in plants and animals


, : Bateman's principles and the measurement of sexual selection in plants and animals. American Naturalist 144(Supplement): S126-S149

Part of a special issue devoted to covering a symposium on sexual selection in plants and animals. A framework for studying sexual selection in plants and hermaphroditic animals is presented. The framework is generated using a generalization of A. J. Bateman's approach to animal mating systems. The main aspect of this generalization is the notion that the relationship between fecundity and mating success can take a number of forms beyond those found in Bateman's data. Under many conditions, female animals or the female function of a hermaphroditic plant or animal may encounter sexual selection. Path diagrams demonstrating that sexual selection is a component of fecundity selection are presented. Statistical procedures for determining sexual selection in plant and animal populations with separate or combined sexes are discussed.

The red (R)/far-red (FR) photon flux ratio of daylight is about 1.1-1.2. If the R/FR ratio is >1 the plant becomes dwarfed, if it is <1 the plant elongates rapidly. By applying these principles with daylight, several kinds of coloured poly-m...
