Macroevolutionary analysis of three components in the stickleback breeding system, male/female nuptial colouration, male/female courtship and male lead/female follow to the nest revealed that: (i) a change in the male lead is always coupled with a change in the female follow, although there is no correlation between changes in particular components of the leadfollow system; (ii) a change in male courtship is coupled with a change in female courtship in all taxa but Gasterosteus and Hypoptychus. Once again, there is no correlation between changes in particular courtship components except for a possible coupling of 'male pummel' and 'female sink to the substrate'; and (iii) there is no correlation between the diversification of the male and female nuptial colour signals. These different patterns of macroevolutionary co-origination and co-diversification interact to produce unique and reliable species and sex-specific signals at the beginning of courtship + tightly coupled signals involved in coordination between spawning partners at the final stages of courtship. In order to explain the preceding macroevolutionary patterns, we now need to delineate the genetic basis for the traits in each behavioural system.
