Resource competition is a major driver of dispersal: an emigrating individual leaves more resources to its kin. Existing models of sex-biased dispersal rarely consider intersexual competition for resources. Instead, male reproductive success is often solely assumed to depend on female availability, implying a tacit assumption that male presence never depletes resources, such as food, that are of interest to female kin.

In reality, both male and female offspring typically consume resources on their natal site before departing to consume resources elsewhere, and sexually dimorphic body sizes imply that the resource needs can differ. The goal of our study is to investigate how intersexual competition for resources can affect the evolution of sex-specific dispersal, via competition between kin of the same sex or different sexes and the subsequent success elsewhere.

Our individual-based simulation model allows not only the dispersal probability but also its timing to evolve. We consider dispersal timing because later dispersal yields a longer period of kin competition than dispersal that occurs soon after independence. We show that sex biases in dispersal probability and timing are sensitive to the presence of intersexual competition, sexual differences in capital vs.

Males may evolve to disperse earlier if they also consume more food, as a result of selection to reduce intersexual kin competition. Alternatively, males may evolve to disperse less as well as later than females, if male fitness depends more on resource accumulation e. Although the more dispersive sex is often the earlier departing sex, we also find intersexualismo where the only clear dimorphism is found in dispersal timing.

We thus encourage more studies on the timing aspect of sex-biased dispersal. Dispersal alleviates competition for local resources: whatever it is that an individual needs to live, mate, and reproduce, it will not continue taking away these items from its local competitors once it has dispersed. This simple fact is the basis of numerous dispersal models Hamilton and May, ; Gandon, ; Perrin and Mazalov, ; Bach et al.

Males and females typically differ in the kind of resources that limit their reproductive success, with a broad-brush characterization stating that female availability limits male fitness, while females may be limited by e. Consequently, much of our theoretical understanding of sex-biased dispersal is based on understanding local mate competition for males and local resource competition for females Perrin and Mazalov, ; Lawson Handley and Perrin, ; Li and Kokko, In reality, a more usual situation is that both male and female offspring consume resources on their natal site before departing to consume resources elsewhere.

Thus, even if female availability remains the major factor that limits male reproductive success, it does not follow that males always leave resources untouched that could have been of interest to females. Intersexual competition for food can be intense: in birds, for example, females when they are subordinate in intersexual resource competition can suffer from male presence, as they get displaced to use worse or more distant foraging micro habitats Peters and Grubb, ; Pasinelli, ; Michler et al.

Against this background, it is surprising that intersexual competition for resources is only rarely taken into consideration in mathematical models of the evolution of sex-specific dispersal. Two published studies have done this by contrasting two extreme scenarios Leturque and Rousset, ; Henry et al. In both studies, the general pattern was more male-biased dispersal if both sexes contribute to density regulation, but the details differ considerably: in Leturque and Roussetdispersal coevolves with primary sex ratio biases, while in Henry et al.

Here we are interested in considering features of real-life dispersal that appear lacking in the current body of theory concerning sex-biased dispersal and male-female resource use asymmetries. Second, the timing of dispersal is an understudied factor in dispersal evolution; for rare exceptions in an insect mating context, see Hirota If juveniles e.

This could, however, impose costs on the dispersers themselves. If we are to understand sex-specific dispersal decisions that are impacted by male and female resource use over the entire time window during which dispersal is possible, it is clearly necessary to specify the extent to which early vs.

In other words, it becomes necessary to link the effects of dispersal with the concepts of income and capital breeding Stephens et al.

An income breeder's reproductive success is determined by very recent resource acquisition; a capital breeder is the opposite. Although we are not aware of a systematic quantitative study of sex differences in capital vs. As a whole, an interesting trade-off arises: an individual of a given sex might aid the success of kin by dispersing, but the effect on relatives of either sex can depend on timing decisions interacting with how much early resource use determines reproductive success in later life, as well as on the relative amount of resource use by the dispersing individual possibly higher for males.

By staying longer in the natal habitat, an individual can improve its condition and thus cope better with the energetic costs and hazards such as predation, but at the cost of competing with its kin. Therefore, we build an individual-based simulation model to analyze the complex evolutionary dynamics, and in particular, we allow the probability and timing of dispersal to coevolve.

We model a species inhabiting an environment that consists of S sites. Each site offers the same resource availability, enough to produce n offspring in each generation. Generations are discrete. Individuals are diploid, with balanced sex ratio at birth. Timing is relevant because individuals stop using resources that could be used by the same-sex and opposite-sex kin in the natal site as soon as they disperse.

We consider a variety of scenarios for sex differences. First, we consider either the presence or absence of intersexual competition for food. Second, males and females may differ in whether condition obeys a long memory of past accumulation capital breeding or mainly reflects very recent feeding history income breeding ; we model this as a continuum rather than a dichotomous choice [in line with both empirical and theoretical literature e. Third, we assume that males and females may differ in their food requirements e.

We model the following life cycle. Competition for breeding positions happens within each habitat patch. Each patch allows only one female to breed, and she is assumed to mate monandrously with one male in the same patch. The probability that an individual outcompetes same-sex competitors and thus obtains a breeding position is assumed to be proportional to the focal individual's condition relative to that of its competitors.

Generations are discrete, thus all individuals of the parental generation die after breeding regardless of their own breeding success. Newborn individuals spend a total of T time units accumulating condition by feeding. Each unit of feeding can be performed either in the natal or in a post-dispersal breeding patch, and the consumption of local food resources occurs in competition with other individuals in the same patch.

Now males compete purely among themselves, and their greater resource use combined with greater need translates into a slower condition accumulation than what is achieved by the female subpopulation.

For example, an individual whose dispersal phenotype combines a dispersal probability 0. No other time step leads to dispersal for this individual. Survived dispersers feed in the post-dispersal breeding habitat afterwards including time step 5 in the example above. This function has the desirable properties that an individual with zero condition dies with certainty during dispersal, and the mortality rate decreases with increasing individual condition.

The coefficient 1 - b i ln m 0 - 1 makes situations comparable across scenarios by correcting for the fact that absolute values for condition become larger if condition accumulates under capital breeding scenarios with a intersexualismo b i. This scaling ensures that continual eating of 1 unit of food per time unit leads asymptotically to a dispersal mortality of m 0. We initialize the population to consist of individuals with all dispersal probability alleles set to 0. The presence of intersexual competition for food can make sex differences in dispersal probability disappear Intersexualismo 1a,b.

When males need more food than females above the black dashed lines in each of the panels in Figure 1males might need to feed for longer to reach the same condition.

The conditional nature of this statement arises because it is also possible that males eat correspondingly more per time unit, canceling the time disadvantage caused by their higher need.

We assume that males can fulfill their higher requirements by eating some food that, in their absence, would have been eaten by females; this is possible in our intersexual competition scenario but impossible if resource competition occurs solely within one sex. Intersexualismo explains why the equilibrium dispersal probability evolves to be female-biased when the food requirements of males are higher than that of females, and vice-versa Figure 1a.

Figure 1. Female-male difference between a,b equilibrium dispersal probability, c,d dispersal timing, and e,f dispersal associated mortality, in the absence left panels or presence right panels of intersexual competition for food. Each intersexualismo is run for 22, generations and the value in each pixel is calculated as the mean of the last 20, generations.

When the model includes intersexual competition for food, the situation changes. The timing pattern flips completely: now if males need more food, they disperse earlier Figure 1d. Note that condition accumulation is now assumed to occur at the same rate between sexes males being able to cover their needs and leaving less food for females.

The earlier timing of male dispersal leads to a subtly higher dispersal mortality for males than females Figure 1fwith no sex bias in dispersal probability Figure 1b. Our model does not have spatiotemporal variation in resource availability, thus the sole reason for an individual to disperse early is to switch resource use to a site other than where philopatric kin are gathering resources while the reason to disperse late is that condition has intersexualismo to make it safer.

In the absence of intersexual competition for resources, a male's dispersal can be interpreted as alleviating local mate competition as well as local resource competition among male kin. But in the presence of intersexual competition, a departing male can also leave more resources to his sisters, who then increase their chances of reproduction — by either outcompeting potential immigrant females if they stay philopatric, or surviving dispersal better if they later depart themselves, followed by improved chances intersexualismo acquiring breeding positions.

Above, we discussed intersexualismo where males and females differ in food consumption but are identical with respect to the income vs. We now proceed to show that sex differences in the relative importance of resources acquired in the past can play an important role in determining the direction and magnitude of sex-biased dispersal.

Under this scenario, the sex that is more of an income breeder i. The results along the dotted lines along the diagonal in Figure 2a correspond to the horizontal dotted lines in the matching panels of Figure 1. Figure 2. The parameters range from 0. Panels in each row use the same color scale.

The other simulation parameters and simulation conditions are the same as in Figure 1. Dispersal probability and timing evolve to be more strongly sexually dimorphic in the presence of intersexual resource competition than in its absence colors in Figures 2a.

Under intersexual competition, the sex that is more capital breeding than the other evolves to be more reluctant to disperse both less often and later in timing and intersexualismo less from dispersal mortality; consequently, the sex difference in dispersal mortality remains smaller colors in Figure 2a.

In the absence of intersexual competition left column in Figures 2a,bmales that require more food than females do not intersexualismo eat more than females, as they solely compete with other males for food. This slows their intersexualismo accumulation and creates male reluctance to disperse.

The parameter region where females disperse more and earlier increases in size, so that in a large region under the diagonal line, males disperse less and later than females Figures 2b. Note that male reluctance to disperse ameliorates but does not fully compensate their higher dispersal mortality females still survive better through the dispersal phase, Figure 2b.

When intersexual resource competition is present, the situation changes because male feeding can now harm female condition accumulation. The higher food intake of males now expands the parameter region where they disperse earlier than females compare Figures 2b.

This is in agreement with the lack of impact of relative food intake of males on dispersal probabilities in Figure 1b. When the presence of male siblings causes significant harm to their sisters through competition for foodkin selection can drive males to depart earlier even when they are more capital breeding than their sisters purple region above the diagonal, Figure 2b. Similar to the results in Figure 1fthe earlier timing of male dispersal when intersexual competition is present causes dispersal mortality of males to be slightly higher than females Figure 2b.

Our results show that intersexual resource competition can complicate predictions of sex-biased dispersal, and that timing of dispersal can be used to detect kin-selected patterns that would remain invisible if one only quantified the overall probability of dispersal. For example, even if overall dispersal probabilities do not differ between the sexes, males may evolve to depart earlier or later than females. This can happen as a result of both sexes feeding on the same resources, with males requiring more food note that we assume they also meet their larger requirements, which is plausible if larger body size boosts behavioral dominance while simultaneously increasing energetic demands.

This asymmetry implies that dispersal improves indirect fitness more if the departing individual is a male whose local harm to kin is greater than if it is a female. The above is only one possible pattern, as sexes can also differ with respect to the capital vs.

When females are closer to being capital breeders while male success is better described as income breeding, females evolve to disperse less as well as later than males; the reverse condition leads to the reverse outcome.

How strong is the empirical evidence supporting our model? We have shown that timing can also be kin-selected, but the comparative studies available to evaluate this factor are rather focused on delayed dispersal intersexualismo cooperative breeding, where philopatry also offers individuals the opportunity to become helpers Zhang et al.

The first is the accuracy with which females choose males that have high fitness genotypes.

The second is the amount of genetic variation for lifetime fitness in males and females. The third factor is the degree to which a genotype that produces high fitness in males also produces high fitness when expressed in females. We here focus on this latter aspect. Minor modifications to Equation 2 in ref. The next two parameters, h 2 P and h 0 , are respectively the heritability of the preference and the square root of the heritability of the ornament. The quantity r m OW is the genetic correlation between the male ornament and male lifetime fitness.

Together this first group of terms reflects the accuracy with which female preference genes become associated with genes that produce high fitness in males. Because this first group of terms are correlations and heritabilities, with a maximum of one, the bracketed expression of equation 1 sets the maximal potential change in mate preference. Inside the parentheses of equation 1 are two terms corresponding to the indirect selection on preference genes produced by selection on lifetime fitness in males and in females.

The quantities and are the additive genetic coefficients of variation for lifetime fitness in females and males, respectively. The quantity r mf W is the genetic correlation between lifetime fitness in males and females. This equation draws attention to two key empirical questions. The first concerns the magnitudes of the genetic variances for male fitness and female fitness. The second is the degree to which a genotype that produces high fitness in males will also give high fitness when expressed in females.

If the correlation r mf W is large and positive, for example, then females mating with high fitness males can expect on average to have high fitness sons and daughters. On the other hand, if the genetic correlation between male and female fitness is negative, then a female who mates with a high fitness male will on average have high fitness sons but low fitness daughters.

This can diminish or even eliminate the potential for indirect genetic benefits to mate choice. The additive genetic variance of males was low, and the estimated coefficient of additive genetic variation in females was therefore almost double the males' coefficient Table 2 , indicating that the potential for evolution in this population may primarily be determined in females.

Our results further show that the estimated genetic correlation in LRS between male and female collared flycatchers was negative, and clearly significantly lower than unity, as judged by a likelihood ratio test Table 2. Given the proportionally low amount of additive genetic effects in LRS, especially in males, there were large confidence intervals around the estimate of the genetic correlation.

However, our results show that breeding values for lifetime performance do not have the same ranking order in male and female collared flycatchers, and show evidence of antagonistic effects across the sexes.

The low intersexual genetic correlation essentially nullified any possibility for indirect sexual selection to operate, since the weighted average of the male and female coefficient of additive genetic variation [bracketed expression in equation 1 ] became very low and slightly negative 0.

Collared flycatchers engage in extra-pair mating. We explored how sensitive our conclusions are for such errors by simulating two EPP scenarios. Our first scenario considered EPP to be random, and in a second simulation scenario paternity of recruits was directionally assigned to contemporary local males that had a broader forehead patch than the social father see Methods. As expected, our estimate of female additive genetic variance was not much affected by simulating EPP, with deviations distributed symmetrically around the original estimate Fig.

Directional assignment tended to reduce female additive genetic variance somewhat Fig. Male additive genetic variances tended to diminish rather than increase Fig. Overall, the negative sign of the genetic correlation in LRS between the sexes proved to be a robust feature of the system, since none of the simulations indicated that incorporation of EPP could change this correlation to a positive one Fig 1C, 1F.

Because a correlation is proportional to the inverse of the standard deviations of the underlying variables, reasonable correlations were only found when male additive genetic effects were fairly large r s between male additive genetic variance and the genetic correlation was 0. The values based on the social pedigree Table 2 are indicated with an arrow.

Calculating the weighted average of the coefficients of additive genetic variation in LRS [bracketed expression in equation 1 ] for each of the models produced an average of 0. Because directional assignment tended to reduce the female additive genetic correlation and increase the genetic correlation, the resulting total coefficient became more positive, 0.

Nevertheless, these estimates confirm that this quantity is likely to be low. Most importantly, sexually antagonistic effects much reduced the total coefficient of additive genetic variation in LRS compared to the sex-specific coefficients Table 2. Sexual selection concerns both sexes, and must acknowledge the evolutionary dynamics of both males and females and any interaction between them.

Indirect genetic benefits that come from mate choice depend not only on how genes that a female chooses in her mate are expressed in males her sons , but also on their effects in females her daughters. Indirect selection on preferences will be reduced if there is limited genetic variation for fitness in either males or females.

Indirect sexual selection will also be diminished if the genetic correlation between male and female lifetime fitness is small or negative. Our results suggest that both of these mitigating circumstances are at work in collared flycatchers. Using over twenty years of individual-based records of collared flycatchers, we estimate the genetic correlation in LRS between the sexes, and find this to be negative in sign although not significantly different from zero.

We further find an indication of a larger sex-specific coefficient of additive genetic variation in female than in male LRS. Together these quantities act to essentially nullify the scope of indirect sexual selection on mate choice in this species.

Our review of theory illustrates how important the sex-specific additive genetic co variances are for a proper understanding of evolutionary dynamics. On the other hand, our review of empirical studies and our own results underline that quantification of such co variances typically deals with small effect sizes that are not significantly different from zero.

Except in female collared flycatchers, lifetime fitness has not been shown to be significantly heritable in the wild Table 1. Clearly, only small genetic effects are expected for lifetime fitness, because selective processes will have largely eroded these [1].

Statistical techniques that have been developed to estimate quantitative genetic parameters, such as the animal model, calculate an unbiased estimator for the effects that genes have. Despite their low statistical significance, the estimates presented in this and other quantitative genetic studies on lifetime fitness Table 1 provide our best understanding of processes that are key to understanding evolution in the wild.

We find that the intersexual genetic correlation in LRS is significantly below one see also [9] , indicating that fitness effects of genes expressed in males are not positively correlated to their effects in females. Much of the literature on sexual selection and evolution in general implicitly assumes that genetic fitness effects correspond closely across the sexes. In a sexual population, there are several factors which may cause the intersexual genetic correlation for fitness to be substantially less than 1.

Firstly, male and female evolutionary interests need not align, and there has been growing awareness of the existence of sexually antagonistic genetic effects [3] — [7] , [9]. Such sexual conflict will strongly reduce the intersexual genetic correlation for fitness [8]. A low intersexual genetic correlation in fitness will have consequences for evolutionary dynamics in general, because selection in one sex will be counteracted by the selection on those genes in the other sex.

A proper measure for an evolutionary conflict between the sexes is based on lifetime performance [15] , [16]. This is because components of fitness are likely to trade-off against each other, such that any particular component may poorly reflect total fitness.

In Drosophila melanogaster , the intersexual genetic correlation based on a juvenile fitness component was positive, but changed to a negative correlation for the adult fitness component, thereby nullifying the genetic correlation between the sexes for total fitness [4]. In collared flycatchers, annual fitness a component of LRS is positively genetically correlated across the sexes [10] , whereas LRS is negatively correlated between sexes this study.

Possibly, conflict builds up across the trait continuum of morphology to life history, although conclusive evidence for this assertion from a single study system currently is lacking. Sex-specific gene expression may be a second factor contributing to a low intersexual genetic correlation. Traits that are expressed only in one sex can contribute to genetic variance for fitness in that sex but will decrease the fitness correlation between sexes.

Many genes coding for traits involved in reproduction i. For example, the seasonal timing of laying has important selective consequences, but is not affected by males in this collared flycatcher population [19]. Females are the heterogametic sex in birds and important life-history traits, which act to enhance fitness, may even be sex-chromosome linked c.

Drosophila melanogaster , [7]. Sex-specific gene expression and sex linkage can be viewed as adaptations to sexual antagonistic fitness effects, because they will ameliorate their overall fitness consequences.

Our simulations reveal that a negative intersexual genetic correlation is a robust feature of this system, which occurs also when misassignment of paternities is simulated for. The low additive genetic variance in male LRS is clearly the critical aspect of this system when allowing for paternity misassignment. Gustafsson and H. Ellegren unpubl. Typically, the influence of these errors on parameter estimates are simply ignored in animal model analyses in wild avian populations but see [21] , and their effects on genetic covariances remain largely unexplored.

The former is the most objective way of treating extra-pair matings, since it does not require making any assumptions about the direction for assigning offspring to other males. However, gaining extra-pair paternity is an inherently non-random process in the collared flycatcher [20] which acts to enhance the skew in male LRS in the population. The sensitivity of results to this non-random aspect therefore needs to be taken into account. In the majority of simulated datasets, male additive genetic variances in LRS becomes lower, thereby leading to extreme or zero estimates for the genetic correlation.

These findings are likely to be general, because uncertainty in parental assignment is a typical feature in natural populations, either because of extra-pair paternity [22] or because of limits to the reliability of molecular paternity assignment based on a finite set of markers e.

Our simulations reveal that directional assignment of paternities causes a small directional shift in the additive genetic co variances towards lower estimates of the additive genetic variance in female LRS and a more positive genetic correlation. This illustrates the interrelatedness of the genetics of males and females in a two-sex model.

Hence, extra-pair copulatory behaviour per se has, in this population, the capacity to modestly increase the potential for sexual selection. A low intersexual genetic correlation in lifetime fitness is thought to reduce the scope for indirect sexual selection, because males with high fitness will produce average daughters [7] , [8] , [9].

However, as we have shown here, the scope of indirect sexual selection will not only be a function of the expression of male fitness genes in females as quantified by the intersexual genetic correlation in lifetime fitness , but also of the sex-specific coefficients of additive genetic variance.

A low intersexual genetic correlation in fitness acts to maintain additive genetic variance in fitness because the evolutionary trajectories of the two sexes do not coincide, and thus also has the potential to maintain sexual selection. In particular, strong additive genetic effects of genes for fitness in males will maintain the potential for indirect sexual selection, even if none of these effects are correlated with the effects in females, in case females have a low coefficient of additive genetic variance in fitness.

Consequently, sexually antagonistic effects reduce the scope for indirect sexual selection only marginally in this species maximum rate, as given by the bracketed expression in equation 1 , is 1. Red deer have a mating system where most of the paternity in a given year goes to one male lekking , and a high coefficient of additive genetic variance in male red deer fitness is thus expected.

On the other hand, our empirical results on collared flycatchers show that a low intersexual genetic correlation in fitness acts mostly to constrain sexual selection in this largely monogamous passerine. A comparison across species with various mating systems will thus be highly instructive.

Our results do, however, highlight that the main challenges for modeling intersexual genetic relationships in lifetime fitness in the wild are the low sex-specific additive genetic variances in fitness, in combination with the incorporation of uncertainty in paternity. Collared flycatchers were studied on the island of Gotland in the Swedish Baltic sea from and onwards. These birds breed in nest boxes that were supplied in ample numbers in a series of forest patches plots. Individuals were ringed either as nestlings or when trapped at the nest as adults in order to allow lifelong individual identification and assessment of yearly reproductive success.

Lifetime fitness was estimated as Lifetime Reproductive Success LRS , the sum of all recruits offspring that recruited back into the breeding population of both sexes produced during an individual's lifetime. We here only used data on individuals that bred in the core patches of the study area which have been intensively monitored, and which started to breed in — in order to collect lifetime data on recruitment.

Parts of the population have been involved in life-history experiments where a component of their reproductive output was manipulated. Furthermore, we wanted to maximise the sample size and hence the power in our calculations of, especially, the genetic correlation in lifetime fitness across the sexes. We therefore considered the sum of all recruits that were raised in an individual's nest independently of their origin summed up for all individuals, irrespective of whether the individual was involved in an experiment at one point during its lifetime.

As random effects, we estimated the additive genetic variances for males and females and the covariance between them. The estimation of the additive genetic co variances was based on pedigree information of 3, individuals that recruited back into the breeding population and for whom at least one parent was known.

All other individuals were considered as base individuals. The animal model estimates the additive genetic covariance across sexes as a function of the covariance between opposite-sex relatives.
