The aim of this research project is to investigate the role of genotype-by-environment interactions (GEIs) in sexual selection and how GEIs could influence the current view of the evolution of female choice for ornamented males. We will use an integrated approach to experimentally test some of the theoretical predictions of the effects of GEIs in a sexual selection context. In particular, we will investigate 1) the effect of GEIs in the maintenance of the genetic variance underlying male pre- and postcopulatory sexually selected traits, 2) the nature of the genetic variance underlying sexually selected traits; 3) the effect of GEIs on female preference.
