Sexual conflict in simultaneous hermaphrodites: evidence from serranid fishes

  title={Sexual conflict in simultaneous hermaphrodites: evidence from serranid fishes},
  author={Janet L. Leonard},

Much of modern mating systems theory is founded on the assumption that a conflict of interests between males and females acts to shape reproductive strategies. If sexual conflict exists it should extend to simultaneous hermaphrodites. Here, the suggestion is made that hermaphrodite mating systems can be used to explore the assumptions associated with sexual conflict and (a) predictions about hermaphrodite mating systems, and (b) a comparative analysis of the mating systems described for a group… CONTINUE READING
