A quote from the Sexual Selection article:



«Sexual selection is the theory proposed by Charles Darwin that states that the frequency of traits can increase or decrease depending on the attractiveness of the bearer. Biologists today distinguish between “male to male combat” (it is usually males who fight), “mate choice” (usually female choice of male mates) and “mate coercion” (forced mating). Traits selected for by male combat are called “weapons”, and traits selected by mate choice are called “ornaments”.»
