Testing genetic models of mate choice evolution in the wild.

Abstract:

Understanding the mechanisms driving the evolution of mate choice, particularly the importance of indirect genetic benefits, remains a challenge, especially in wild populations. Three recent studies have attempted to quantify the importance of indirect benefits in wild bird populations using approaches derived from quantitative genetic models of mate choice. In all three cases, no support was found for a role of indirect benefits in the evolution of mate choice. These studies suggest that a q...
