The mating systems of symbiotic crustaceans vary broadly, ranging from monogamy to polygamy to promiscuity. This disparity in mating systems coupled with wide differences in host ecology provides opportunities to study the effect of environmental conditions on the social behavior of marine organisms. In this study, we tested the prediction that symbiotic crustaceans inhabiting relatively large and abundant host species are promiscuous rather than monogamous. The host traits above constraint… Expand
