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 in those with resource-based systems. We present the fi rst study of paternity patt erns in a non-resource-based species that does not form… CONTINUE READING
