Habitat selection affects many aspects of individual fitness, which can have strong consequences for lifehistory strategies, species interactions, population dynamics and evolutionary trajectories (e.g. Danchin & Wagner 1997; Morris 2003). A potentially important link among habitat selection, sexual selection and mating systems was recently illustrated with the description of hidden leks by Wagner (1998). Hidden leks evolve in territorial species when female receptivity to extrapair copulations… CONTINUE READING
