AbstractTwo core ideas in the study of mating systems and sexual selection are (1) the existence of a conflict between the sexes over mating decisions, and (2) that variation in ecological conditions drives the evolution of adaptive mating strategies and the diversification of mating systems. A recent burst of experimental studies of mating behavior and sexual selection in water striders has focused on the interaction of these ideas and led to new insights into the evolutionary ecology of mating systems and sexual selection.
