Title: Rapid evolution promotes species coexistence via sexual interactions and temporal fluctuations

Abstract: How does rapid evolution promote species coexistence? Previous studies have focused on resource partitioning and the trade-off between intra- and interspecific competition, but I demonstrate the potential importance of rapid evolution in sexual interactions and coexistence via temporal fluctuations by using mathematical models. Our results indicate that eco-evolutionary dynamics may play a significant role especially in fluctuation-dependent coexistence (the storage effect and relative nonlinearity).
