Data from: Female mate preferences for male body size and shape promote sexual isolation in threespine sticklebacks

Megan L. Head, Genevieve M. Kozak & Janette W. Boughman
Female mate preferences for ecologically relevant traits may enhance natural selection, leading to rapid divergence. They may also forge a link between mate choice within species and sexual isolation between species. Here, we examine female mate preference for two ecologically important traits: body size and body shape. We measured female preferences within and between species of benthic, limnetic, and anadromous threespine sticklebacks (Gasterosteus aculeatus species complex). We found that mate preferences differed between species and...
