Sex ratios under asymmetrical local mate competition in the parasitoid wasp Nasonia vitripennis

Sex ratio theory has proved remarkably useful in testing the adaptive nature of animal behavior. A particularly productive area in this respect is Hamilton's theory of local mate competition (LMC), which has been extended in numerous directions to include greater biological realism, allowing more detailed tests in specific organisms.
