10 The Ruff and multiple mating male strategies Satellite:HeterozygousNon territorialLonger lived11% copulationsTerritorialHomozygous recessiveShorter-lived89% of copulations if with a sattellite
11 What leads to different strategies? Polygyny / Promiscuity and lekking?OSRHot spotsHot shotsFemale preferencePolyandry?Clutch Size Limitations?
12 leads to increased sexual selection Increasing variance in reproductive successleads to increased sexual selectionPromiscuity > Polygyny = Polyandry (reversed SD) > Monogamy100% of malescontributinggenesSpecies
13 Convergence (sort of) in African widowbirds Shabby epaulets!Run-away selection –Based on female preferencelinked to male traitWhat a tail!!
