Abstract: Maydianne CB Andrade is an Associate Professor of Evolutionary Biology at the University of Toronto Scarborough. Her research on the evolution of mating strategies has resulted in awards from the Animal Behavior Society (Outstanding New Investigator Award), International Society for Behavioral Ecology (Pitelka Award for Excellence in Research), the Government of Ontario (Premier's Research Excellence Award), and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada. Her current work uses black widow spiders as models for understanding how natural and sexual selection interact to shape behaviour, morphology and physiological traits of adults.
