Once inserted, the male releases his sperm into the pouch to fertilize the eggs. A third promising group, the fish family Syngnathidae with more than species of pipefishes Dawson and about 32 species of seahorses Lourie et al.
Comp Biochem Physiol 69A : — Ornithol Monogr 33 : 1 — Then the hypothesis to be tested is whether differences among species in sexual dimorphism are related to the underlying genetic mating systems, perhaps with the most dimorphic species also being the most polyandrous Table 1.
Sex roles, ornaments, and evolutionary explanation. Female song attracts males in the alpine accentor Prunella collaris. Balancing selection, random genetic drift, and genetic variation at the major histocompatibility complex in two wild populations of guppies Poecilia reticulata Evolution.
The commonly used definition of sex roles only considers competition over mates Vincent et al. Although males courted and competed less than females, these infrequent behaviors seahorse sex role reversal in animals in Gainesville still have had profound effects on actual mating outcomes: indeed, mating decisions by members of the more choosy sex here, males should be particularly relevant for, and influential on, female mating prospects.
Biological markets: supply and demand determine the effect of partner choice in cooperation, mutualism and mating. Genepop version 1. Size-dependent asymmetry: fluctuating asymmetry versus antisymmetry and its relevance to condition-dependent signaling.
The diagram at right shows a spatial map of these maternal alleles in the male's brood pouch. Kvarnemo, B. In various classes of animals a few exceptional cases occur, in which the female instead of the male has acquired well pronounced secondary sexual characters, such as brighter colors, greater size, strength, or pugnacity.
