  • Abstract According to mate choice models, a female should prefer males with traits that are reliable indicators of genetic quality which the sire can pass on to their progeny. [...] Key Method We examine a game theoretical model that predicts female mate choice as a function of morph frequency and population density.Expand Abstract
