Abstract: ABSTRACT Is the evolution of sexual traits predictable in the wild? Using replicate experimental guppy populations, Kemp et al. (2018) addressed this question and found that males evolved more elaborate ornamentation in response to a manipulation that increased the influence of sexual selection. Moreover, the study reveals that evolutionary trajectories of male ornamentation are causally affected by female preference and the environmental conditions under which sexual coloration is displayed and perceived.
