Great publication by Tiit Teder

Tiit managed to publish his new meta-analysis (Why do males emerge before females? Sexual size dimorphism drives sexual bimaturism in insects; in the prestigious journal Biological Reviews. The study shows that differences in the development times between sexes are caused by sexual size dimorphism rather than direct selection per se (direct selection hypothesis). Interestingly, protandry is not as ubiquitous as often presumed: females emerged before males (= protogyny) in almost 36% of the investigated species, and for most cases of protandry, differences in the development length between sexes were only small. Congratulations, Tiit!
