Understanding pre and postcopulatory mechanisms of sexual selection (male male competition and female choice) can provide insight into the evolution of male ornamentation. In this study, we use an integrative approach to study sexual selection by incorporating measures of both mechanisms using the redside dace, Clinostomus elongatus, a freshwater, externally fertilizing fish found in streams of eastern North America. We measured the success of individual male redside dace in both pre and postspawning sexual selection and related the success of males to a range of traits, including spectral properties and the size of their red spawning coloration, body size metrics and sperm quality.

To that point, several readers have asked why the capability exists to switch off a transponder. In fact very few of a plane’s components are hot wired to be, as you might say, “always on.” In the interest of safety namely, fire and electrical system protection it’s important to have the ability to isolate a piece of equipment, either by a standard switch or, if need be, through a circuit breaker. Also transponders will occasionally malfunction and transmit erroneous or incomplete data, at which point a crew will recycle the device switching it off, then on or swap to another unit.
Banyule City Council sign posting on the banks of the Plenty River, Yallambie Park, reads: of the Wurundjeri william an interesting proposition. Wilkinson’s distance of three miles north of the Plenty/Yarra river confluence is about the same distance as Yallambie is from the river junction, although most commentators favouring a Plenty River signing have generally put the actual location at Partington’s Flat in Greensborough, a little further upstream from Yallambie.
