Eleanor Caves, Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow
Eleanor is examining the behavioural and ecological implications of variation in tail length in male swordtails Xiphophorus helleri. She is investigating how females discriminate between males of swords with differing sizes to understand how this sexually selected trait is perceived.
