Sexual selection through mate choice is a powerful evolutionary process that has been important in the success of sexually-reproducing animals and flowering plants. Over the short term, mate preferences evolve because they improve the outcome of sexual recombination. Over the long term, assortative mate preferences can help maintain genetic diversity, promote speciation, and facilitate evolutionary search through optimal outbreeding; selective mate preferences can reinforce the speed, accuracy… CONTINUE READING
