I develop a series of optimization models of adaptive sperm allocation by external fertilizers when sperm competition is absent. The models differ with respect to either one or two of the following assumptions: the dependence of fertilization success on egg concentration; the optimization criteria (the maximization of per-spawn vs long-term average fitness); and the limiting factor on male reproduction (daily mate and sperm availability vs per-spawn mating costs). I propose that, a priori… CONTINUE READING
