Journal of Ethology, ISSN 0289-0771, 9/2019, Volume 37, Issue 3, pp. 363 - 370
Sexual signals produced by males are costly. Thus, sexual selection may favour males who are able to minimise these costs, but are still reproductively...

Animal Behaviour, ISSN 0003-3472, 07/2017, Volume 129, pp. 189 - 196
Nuptial gifts are under strong selection in terms of female choice. It is hypothesized that nuptial gifts represent an honest signal resulting from the...

Journal Article
Behavioral Ecology, ISSN 1045-2249, 05/2017, Volume 28, Issue 3, pp. 744 - 749
Sexual traits, such as nuptial gifts, are costly and often condition-dependent. Males should be under selection to reduce these costs without impairing their...

Animal Behaviour, ISSN 0003-3472, 07/2017, Volume 129, pp. 9 - 14
Male exploitation of female sensory or motivational biases has been proposed to account for the early evolution of nuptial gift-giving behaviour. The...

Animal Behaviour, ISSN 0003-3472, 06/2014, Volume 92, pp. 25 - 31
Males from gift-giving species attempt to obtain food to offer to females. Therefore, food access may affect both their body condition and their reproductive...

Journal of Arachnology, ISSN 0161-8202, 11/2018, Volume 46, Issue 3, pp. 404 - 412
Nuptial feeding has variable effects on fitness within a species, partly driven by variation in female diet. We investigate nuptial feeding in the spider...
