Abstract The avoidance of genetic incompatibilities between parental genotypes has been proposed to account for the evolution of polyandry. An extension of this hypothesis suggests polyandry may provide an opportunity for females to avoid the cost of inbreeding by exploiting postcopulatory mechanisms that bias paternity toward unrelated male genotypes. Here we test the inbreeding avoidance hypothesis in house mice by experimentally manipulating genetic compatibility via matings between siblings… Expand
Female guppies increase their propensity for polyandry as an inbreeding avoidance strategy
TLDR
This study provides a rare example of females responding to an increased risk of inbreeding by increasing their propensity to remate, but the postcopulatory processes arising from this behaviour, along with the mechanisms underlying kin recognition, await further investigation. Expand
Postcopulatory inbreeding avoidance in guppies
TLDR
It is revealed that postcopulatory processes alone can facilitate inbreeding avoidance and that sperm competition success declines linearly with the level of relatedness, but also that such effects are only apparent at relatedness levels of full siblings or higher. Expand
NO EVIDENCE FOR POSTCOPULATORY INBREEDING AVOIDANCE IN DROSOPHILA MELANOGASTER
TLDR
Siblings did not have a lower fertilization success as compared to unrelated males in either the first (P1) or second (P2) mate role in sperm competition with a standard unrelated competitor male in the study population of D. melanogaster, andalyses of mating latency, copulation duration, egg production rate, and remating interval revealed no evidence for inbreeding avoidance. Expand
No evidence for prezygotic postcopulatory avoidance of kin despite high inbreeding depression
TLDR
Artificial inseminations in a promiscuous bird investigated whether postcopulatory female choice allows the avoidance of fertilization by close kin and found that females do not seem to select sperm of unrelated males. Expand
Polyandry, sperm competition, and reproductive success in mice
TLDR
It is shown that female house mice mated to 3 males (polyandry) had greater postbirth pup survival than females mated 3 times to the same male (monandry). Expand
Inbreeding avoidance in a poeciliid fish (Heterandria formosa)
TLDR
A postcopulatory, prefertilization, inbreeding avoidance mechanism in the least killifish, Heterandria formosa, a species in which males can force matings is reported, suggesting that females do this by reducing the amount of sibling sperm in their reproductive system. Expand
Inbreeding produces trade-offs between maternal fecundity and offspring survival in a monandrous spider
TLDR
Sibling-mated females produced fewer offspring from the first egg sac and fewer total offspring, but inbred offspring survived longer in a range of environments than their outbred counterparts, which suggests that the fitness costs of reduced fecundity in sibling- mated females may be offset by higher offspring survivorship. Expand
Inbreeding avoidance through cryptic female choice in the cannibalistic orb-web spider Argiope lobata
TLDR
The results suggest that females cryptically chose sperm to trade up to more compatible males through storing different quantities, and this work used orb-web spiders of the Mediterranean species Argiope lobata to investigate whether females treat ejaculates from siblings or nonsiblings differently. Expand
Postcopulatory mechanisms of inbreeding avoidance in the island endemic hihi (Notiomystis cincta)
TLDR
This strategy suggests that at the precopulatory stage females may tolerate inbreeding as the costs of developing inbreeding avoidance may be high, especially in light of forced copulations, if natal dispersal is limited or if they gain inclusive fitness. Expand
Experimental Removal of Sexual Selection Reveals Adaptations to Polyandry in Both Sexes
TLDR
It is shown that the expected benefits of evolutionary adaptation to polyandry in T. castaneum depended on the availability of multiple mates, a context-dependent effect, which concerned both sexes, highlights the importance of realistic competition and choice experiments. Expand

Postcopulatory inbreeding avoidance by female crickets only revealed by molecular markers
TLDR
The data show that molecular analyses of paternity are essential to detect subtle mechanisms of postcopulatory sexual selection in females mated to both a sibling and a nonsibling male using microsatellite markers. Expand
Polyandry, sperm competition, and reproductive success in mice
TLDR
It is shown that female house mice mated to 3 males (polyandry) had greater postbirth pup survival than females mated 3 times to the same male (monandry). Expand
Molecular evidence of post–copulatory inbreeding avoidance in the field cricket Gryllus bimaculatus
TLDR
Direct evidence is provided supporting the hypothesis that polyandry is a mechanism to avoid genetic incompatibilities resulting from inbreeding in crickets by examining patterns of paternity using microsatellite markers. Expand
Polyandrous females avoid costs of inbreeding
TLDR
It is shown that in crickets, the eggs of females that mate only with siblings have decreased hatching success, but if females mate with both a sibling and a non-sibling they avoid altogether the low egg viability associated with sibling matings. Expand

TLDR
This work presents examples from the literature to illustrate how sperm competition and female choice of sperm can enable polyandrous females to minimize the risk of fertilization by genetically–incompatible sperm. Expand

TLDR
It is proposed that the cumulative threat to female reproductive success of genetic incompatibility arising from intragenomic conflict may be an important force driving the evolution of polyandry. Expand
The evolution of polyandry: intrinsic sire effects contribute to embryo viability
TLDR
Hatching success is not determined by an interaction between paternal and maternal genotypes but rather that sons inherit paternal genes that influence the viability of eggs laid by their mates, and this data implicate a potential role for indirect genetic effects of male accessory gland products on embryo viability.

TLDR
Results provide no evidence that female T. commodus gain benefits from polyandry by biasing paternity toward genetically more compatible males through postcopulatory mechanisms. Expand
Post-mating sexual selection increases lifetime fitness of polyandrous females in the wild
TLDR
The results show that polyandry improves female lifetime fitness in nature, and is not negated by a decline in maternal lifespan and is too large to be offset by an equivalent decline in the reproductive performance of surviving offspring. Expand

TLDR
It is demonstrated that polyandry provides genetic benefits that significantly enhance female lifetime reproductive success and is most consistent with the genetic incompatibility avoidance hypothesis. Expand
