    Although such examples of extreme male-biased SSD are impressive, they pale in comparison to the extremes reached in many taxa where females are the larger sex. Moderate, female-biased SSD is by far the most common pattern in both animals and dioecious flowering plants (Greenwood and Adams 1987; Fairbairn 1997; Geber et al. 1999; see also other chapters in this volume). Even among birds and mammals, where male-biased SSD generally predominates, several major lineages are characterized by moderate female-biased SSD (e.g. bats (Chiroptera), rabbits and hares (Lagomorpha, Leporidae), baleen whales (Mysticeti), raptors (Falconiformes), and owls (Strigiformes)), and many other lineages include at least some species in which females are slightly larger than males (Ralls 1976; Fairbairn 1997;

    Some of the most male-biased SSDs are exhibited by bustard, grouse, widowbirds, waterfowls, grackles, and brown songlark, whereas the most female-biased SSDs are exhibited by raptors.
