Reproductive mode and the genetic benefits of polyandry

  title={Reproductive mode and the genetic benefits of polyandry},
  author={Jeanne A. Zeh and David W. Zeh},
  journal={Animal Behaviour},
Behavioural ecology is currently undergoing a paradigm shift, with the traditional concepts of the choosy, monogamous female and the coadapted gene complex increasingly giving way to the realization that sexual reproduction engenders conflicts, promotes polyandry, and thereby provides females with a cryptic arsenal of postcopulatory processes with which to safeguard their investment in large, costly eggs. As research focuses on reproduction from the female perspective, evidence is emerging that… CONTINUE READING
