Sexual behavior must have evolved as an efficient mechanism to propagate the species. As a property contributing to Darwinian fitness it must be one of the most critical in the life cycle, because throughout the preadult stages numbers of individuals succumb to the exigencies of their environment so that at the mature stage when reproduction takes place the minimum for the life cycle is attained. A diversity of genotypes acting on the efficiency of sexual behavior at this focal stage will no… Expand
