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. Tamra Mendelson (University of Maryland, Baltimore County) and Dr. Maria Servedio, who is at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill and thus local to NESCent.
