Meta-analysis on stress and sexual signalling published today

Our meta-analysis on the effects of stress on sexual signalling across species was published as an invited review today at Behavioral Ecology. We found that there were no consistent effects of stress on the expression of sexual signals, with the exception of a detrimental effect of stress on opposite sex preferences.

Congratulations to Jaime on a grant from Sawtooth!!!

Congratulations to PhD student Jaime Benjamin for her successful application to Sawtooth for a grant of $3000 for software licenses that will enable her to run conjoint analysis on partner preferences. This will be a novel use of this type of analysis and will allow her to determine how women weigh up a set of different partner characteristics, providing a more ecologically valid research approach to preferences.
