1. Data from: A treefrog with reproductive mode plasticity reveals a changing balance of selection for non-aquatic egg-laying
2019. Touchon, Justin C. Non-aquatic reproduction has evolved repeatedly, but the factors that select for laying eggs on land are not well understood. The treefrog Dendrops... The American Naturalist. Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute.
2019. Heath, Jeremy J., Abbot, Patrick, and Stireman, John O. Most studies of adaptive radiation in animals focus on resource competition as the primary driver of trait divergence. The roles of other ecologica... The American Naturalist.
2019. Sztepanacz, Jacqueline L. and Blows, Mark W. Stabilizing selection is important in evolutionary theories of the maintenance of genetic variance, and has been invoked as the key process determi... The American Naturalist.
4. Data from: Assessing the contributions of reduced immigrant viability and fecundity to reproductive isolation
2019. Porter, Cody Keith and Benkman, Craig W. Reduced fitness of immigrants from alternative environments is thought to be an important reproductive isolating barrier. Most studies evaluating t... The American Naturalist.
5. Data from: Asteraceae pollen provisions protect Osmia mason bees (Hymenoptera: Megachilidae) from brood parasitism
2019. Spear, Dakota M., Silverman, Sarah, and Forrest, Jessica R. K. Many specialist herbivores eat foods that are apparently low quality. The compensatory benefits of a poor diet may include protection from natural ... The American Naturalist.
6. Data from: Behavioral types of predator and prey jointly determine prey survival: potential implications for the maintenance of within species behavioral variation
2019. Pruitt, Jonathan N., Stachowicz, John J., and Sih, Andrew. Recent studies in animal behavior have emphasized the ecological importance of individual variation in behavioral types (e.g. boldness, activity). ... The American Naturalist. University of California, Davis and University of Pittsburgh.
7. Data from: Coevolution between mutualists and parasites in symbiotic communities may lead to the evolution of lower virulence
2019. Nelson, Paul G. and May, Georgiana. Most eukaryotes harbor a diverse community of parasitic, mutualistic and commensal microbial symbionts. Although the diversity of these microbial s... The American Naturalist.
8. Data from: Collective dispersal leads to variance in fitness and maintains offspring size variation within marine populations
2019. Burgess, Scott C, Snyder, Robin E, and Rountree, Barry. Variance in fitness is well known to influence the outcome of evolution but is rarely considered in the theory of marine reproductive strategies. I... The American Naturalist.
9. Data from: Conspicuous plumage does not increase predation risk: a continent-wide test using model songbirds
2019. Cain, Kristal E., Hall, Michelle L., Medina, Illiana, Leitao, Ana V., Delhey, Kaspar, Brouwer, Lyanne, Peters, Anne, Pruett-Jones, Stephen, Webster, Michael S., Langmore, Naomi E., and Mulder, Raoul A. The forces shaping female plumage color have long been debated but remain unresolved. Females may benefit from conspicuous colors but are also expe... The American Naturalist.

2019. Maan, Martine E., Seehausen, Ole, and Groothuis, Ton G.G. Identifying the selective forces that initiate ecological speciation is a major challenge in evolutionary biology. Sensory drive has been implicate... The American Naturalist.
