  • Whether benefits of mate choice accrued by females outweigh costs associated with sexual selection remains largely unresolved. The ‘good genes’ perspective, posing that mate choice benefits females genetically has been challenged by the arguments that sexual selection is driven mostly by direct costs and inter-sexual conflict. Here, I present an overview of experimental tests of predictions of good genes and sexual conflict mechanisms in the bulb mite Rhizoglyphus robini.
