Partner choice is an important selective force in mutualistic partnerships. Although several aspects of mutualism have been well-studied, partner choice remains a novel aspect in the study of marine mutualists. Previous research on the goby-shrimp mutualism suggested that visual cues affect the ability of gobies to discriminate between potential shrimp partners but small sample sizes limited the generalization of that result. Here, primary partner choice in Myersina macrostoma was investigated… CONTINUE READING
