Pleiotropy between male signals and female preferences can facilitate evolution of sexual communication by maintaining coordination between the sexes. Alternatively, it can favor variation in the mating system, such as a reproductive polymorphism. It is unknown how common either of these scenarios are in nature. In Pacific field crickets (Teleogryllus oceanicus) on Kauai, Hawaii, a mutation (flatwing) that segregates as a single locus is responsible for the rapid loss of song production in males...

How sexual traits are gained and lost in the wild remains an important question in evolutionary biology. Pacific field crickets (Teleogryllus oceanicus) in Hawaii provide an unprecedented opportuni...

McLean et al. (1) point to biorepositories as important sources of historical information that can successfully inform disease control by identifying potential novel pathogens. They highlight “modern biospecimen infrastructure,” such as museums and independent collections. Indeed, scientists increasingly recognize the need for expertise in taxonomy, curation of specimens, and the treatment of artifacts, expertise that is disappearing as museums close and budgets tighten (2). Collections can docu...

Evolutionary loss of traits is common over evolutionary time and occurs in diverse taxa. Sexual signals and other non-signal traits should differ in their likelihood of becoming lost because they experience different selective pressures contributing to their diminution or persistence. In particular, conspicuous sexual signals are often exploited by natural enemies; this significant cost can favor signal reduction or loss. Yet sexual signals should also experience strong selection favoring their ...
