Darwin's theory of sexual selection showed how such traits could be selected through competition for mates even if they were otherwise detrimental argued that sexual selection is caused by the greater ability of males than females to increase fitness by mating repeatedly, due to the females' greater energetic commitment to gametes or parental care. Sexual selection theory therefore predicts that traits increasing mating success will have evolved because they increase male success through pollen.
Here I report that a suite of floral traits of a hermaphroditic plant is best interpreted as having evolved through the male competition component of sexual selection, a result with important implications for evolutionary studies of pollination systems.
