Interestingly, to date, research on hybridization and mating systems
have remained largely separate fields, despite the potential importance of mating system
for the outcomes of hybridization and patterns of genetic variation across the genome.
Various authors have proposed that entire bird lineages are predisposed to a particular mating system
(Mauck et al.
Designed to be the smallest and most robust products in their class, the new connectors also have the highest fibre density -- based on the proven QN push-pull mating system
Thresher (1984), in his review of the occurrence of sexual dichromatism in coral reef fishes, noted that although conspicuous permanent sexual dichromatism most often coincides with polygamous species, temporary dichromatism is not clearly related to a particular mating system
but rather is an intraspecific communication channel to express readiness to mate.
The mating system
of chironomid midges (Diptera: Chironomidae).
MATERIALS AND METHODS--This study was conducted in the floodplain by the Blue Point Bridge over the Salt River north of Mesa, Arizona, where most previous research on the mating system
SCIENCE writer Matt Ridley once described the human mating system
as "monogamy plagued by adultery," which sounds a little judgmental.
This then allowed the team to determine the timing of trait evolution and show that male infanticide is the cause of the switch from a multi-male mating system
to monogamy in primates, while bi-parental care and solitary ranging by females are a result of monogamy, not the cause.
Wood pigeons have a monogamous mating system
with relationships lasting for a single season.
Individuals of several populations of these species, collected in Principado de Asturias (Spain), were analyzed to test the influence of their mating system
in the genetic variability displayed by each species.
Structure of the female reproductive tract in the Dungeness crab (Cancer magister) and implications for the mating system
and mating success of the desert spider Agelenopsis aperta.
