Female-biased sex ratios are often observed in parasitic Hymenoptera that mate within small, isolated groups before dispersing to colonize new hosts (Hamilton 1967, Charnov 1982). In these groups there is both mating between sibs and competition among brothers for mates. Much theoretical attention has been devoted to predicting the sex ratio within the groups for the population structure that occurs in these parasitic wasps (reviewed by Charnov 1982, Frank 1983a). Recent theoretical studies… CONTINUE READING
