Data from: Experimental confirmation that body size determines mate preference via phenotype matching in a stickleback species pair

Gina L. Conte & Dolph Schluter
Mate choice by phenotype matching, whereby individuals prefer a mate whose phenotype is similar to their own, should facilitate speciation with gene flow. This is because the genes that control mate signal (the phenotype being matched) also determine the preferred mate signal (‘mate preference’). Speciation is made even easier if phenotype matching is based on a trait under divergent natural selection. In this case, assortative mating should readily evolve as a by-product of divergent selection...
