The structure of sexual networks determines the operation of sexual selection

Abstract:

Sexual selection is a fundamental evolutionary process, but remains debated particularly in the complexity of polyandrous populations where females mate with multiple males. This lack of resolution is partly because studies have largely ignored the structure of the sexual network, i.e. the pattern of mate sharing. Here, we quantify what we call mating assortment with network analysis to specify explicitly the indirect as well as direct relationships between partners. We first review empirical...
