Wei Zhou, Long Yu, Bernetta Z.W. Kwek, Jin Ge, Hua Zeng & Daiqin Li
How animals assess information encoded in individual colour patches have been extensively studied, yet the role of both individual colour patches and gross colour pattern (i.e. the combination of colour patches) remains understudied. We tested the functioning of both individual colour patches and gross colour pattern in sexual selection using the jumping spider Siler semiglaucus as a study system. We first quantified sexual dimorphism in S. semiglaucus in both individual patches and gross colour pattern...
