Variation in male testosterone levels across and within species is known to be related to mating systems, male dominance rank and aggression rates. When aggression enhances access to mates, dominance status and androgen levels correlate positively. Deviation from this pattern is expected when access to females is determined by factors other than male dominance or when high androgen levels interfere with nonaggressive forms of male reproductive strategies such as paternal care and pair bonding… Expand
