Hamilton (1967) pointed out that Fisher’s (1930) argument predicting an equality of the sex ratio may break down when there is local competition for mates. He considered in particular a model in which the environment consists of a number of isolated patches, each of which is colonized by a number of inseminated females; the offspring breed within the patch before dispersal. The present paper provides a careful derivation of the equilibrium sex ratio under this model in both diploid and haplo… CONTINUE READING
