Well, first assuming that adaptations that are evolutionarily
advantageous are passed on and hence become evolutionary trends, you
might say that because males are selected to do the hunting (and other
aggressive behaviors), they would be selected to have the accompanying
features that would allow them to best do their jobs. That would
explain for the differences in overall body size, as well as canines and
sagittal crests.

BTW - I would be happy to read your paper. Please send me a copy as
soon as it is done.
