—The potential for diff erences between genetic paternity and paternity inferred from behavioral observation has long been recognized. These diff erences are associated with the challenge for females of seeking both genetic and material benefi ts; this challenge is less severe in species with polygynous, non-resource-based mating systems (such as leks) than(More)
Males in several lekking species aggregate with their relatives to display for females, suggesting that kin selection can affect sexual selection. Several hypotheses have been proposed to explain this behavior, but no general explanation has emerged. In most species with lek mating systems, neighboring males have intense aggressive interactions that can(More)
