Choice of mating partners may affect fitness. Both phenotypic and genetic traits have been shown to play roles in the mating processes of animals. We investigated the roles of phenotypic and genetic characteristics in the patterns of social mating in the Silver-throated Tit (Aegithalos glaucogularis), a sexually monochromatic species that exhibits sexual size dimorphism, rarely sings, does not occupy territories, and has a relative low level of extrapair paternity. To explore the role of… CONTINUE READING
