Sexual selection, sex-ratio and sexual dimorphism in host-parasite systems

Sexual selection is a major agent of evolution shaping several aspects of behaviour, body structure, population structure and life cycle of most animals. The purpose of the study is to examine the ongoing evolution of sexually selected traits (like sexual dimorphism, sex-ratio) in passerine birds in parallel with the evolution of the sexually selected traits of their ectoparasites.
