An index of intensity of sexual selection proposed by Nishida (1992: Res. Popul. Ecol. 34: 373-382) was examined. Two examples were presented to show that Nishida's index was not free from confounding effect of mortality schedule. Importance of removing the phylogenetic effects in comparative analyses was also discussed.
