IN connexion with the note by G. L. Purser in NATURE of July 24 on “Succession of Broods of Lebistes”, it has long been known that several of the viviparous fish, such as Lebistes, are fertilized for a long time after one copulation. E. Philippi has described this phenomenon in Glaridichthys1. Johs. Schmidt found it in Lebistes2. He says that he had observed seven broods in succession. I have noted up to eight broods3. 
PATTERNS OF MATING IN NATURAL POPULATIONS OF XIPHOPHORUS (PISCES: POECILIIDAE). I: X. MACULATUS FROM BELIZE AND MEXICO
TLDR
The results of an indirect analysis of reproductive patterns in natural populations of the platyfish, Xiphophorus maculatus are presented, which determined the number and genotypes of inseminating males, the existence of sperm succession, fitness differences among genotypes, and whether mating is at random with respect to color patterns.
Genetic consequences of an artificial introduction of guppies (Poecilia reticulata) in N. Trinidad
TLDR
There is strong evidence that the enzyme loci studied here are selectively neutral in the face of selection pressures known to have modified behaviour since the introduction of intraspecific fish.
Evidence for sperm transfer during sneaky mating in wild Trinidadian guppies
Among Trinidadian guppies Poecilia reticulata, 15% of non-receptive females had recoverable sperm that must have come from successful sneaky matings. These results provide the first evidence that
Multiple paternity in different populations of the sailfin molly, Poecilia latipinna
TLDR
Rates of multiple paternities were investigated in the sailfin molly (Poecilia latipinna), using eight microsatellite loci and found one male typically sired far more offspring than would be expected under an assumed equal probability of all detected males siring offspring.
Polymorphism and pair formation in the mosquitofish Gambusia holbrooki (Pisces: Poeciliidae)
TLDR
Black spotted males occurred in pairs ten fold more frequently than expected under random pairing and the major behavioral mechanism accounting for the disproportionate occurrence of spotted males in pairs is the preference of females for these males.
The behavioural ecology of the Trinidadian guppy, Poecilia reticulata, as an invasive species
This thesis focuses on the guppy, Poecilia reticulata, as an invasive species. Its nonnative distribution, the biology behind its success and the reasons for its introduction are examined. A
Polyandry and paternity in a wild population of the swordtail Xiphophorus nigrensis
TLDR
The high levels of multiple paternity and reproductive skew suggest that postcopulatory sexual selection has important evolutionary consequences in the swordtail X. nigrensis.
The inheritance of quantitative fitness traits in guppies, Poecilia reticulata (Pisces: Poeciliidae). II. tests for inbreeding effects
TLDR
The data support earlier findings of Y-linkage of major sexual behaviour patterns in inbred strains of guppies and suggest that breeding system can have an effect, but that different genotypes respond in different manners.
Fertility Advertisement by Female Sailfin Mollies, Poecilia latipinna (Pisces: Poeciliidae)
TLDR
Fertility advertisement by females allows intermale competition to be focused on a few individual females at any one time and appears to provide a reproductive advantage to larger male mollies and is thus an important element influencing the outcome of sexual selection.
Do placental species abort offspring? Testing an assumption of the Trexler–DeAngelis model
TLDR
The results suggest P. monacha responds to low food by sacrificing reproduction to maintain lipids, while P. prolifica maintains reproduction at the expense of lipids.
