The aim of this short-term visit is to establish the framework for a book-length monograph (not an edited volume) on Sexual Selection and derive a plan of action for its completion. We have a publication contract in place with Ben Roberts Publishing Company (Greenwood, Colorado). Here, I propose two short visits (late summer, 2014 and late fall 2014) to work intensively on this project with my co-authors on this project Dr. Rebecca Safran (University of Colorado) and Dr. Maria Servedio, who is at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill and thus local to NESCent.
