The social mechanisms underlying this phenomenon have not been identified but have been assumed to include reproductive suppression by dominant males and/or avoidance of mating with closely related females. We evaluated these two possible components of male reproductive failure. Seven postpubertal males and their fathers underwent a series of 45-min sex tests… CONTINUE READING
