Alternative reproductive tactics by Oliveira R.F., Taborsky M., Brockmann H.J. (eds.)

By Oliveira R.F., Taborsky M., Brockmann H.J. (eds.)

The research of other reproductive strategies (the behavioural ideas utilized by members to extend their reproductive luck) is an evolutionary puzzle, and one in all nice curiosity to researchers. for example, why do a little men safeguard either nest and eggs, whereas others sneak into nests whereas pairs are spawning and fertilise these eggs? the sphere deals a unique chance to check the evolution and sensible motives of phenotypic version, that is a normal challenge within the box of evolutionary biology. by way of integrating either mechanistic (psychological) and evolutionary (behavioural ecology) views and by way of protecting a superb range of species, substitute Reproductive strategies addresses this built-in subject of longstanding curiosity, bringing jointly a large number of differently scattered info in an obtainable shape that's perfect for graduate scholars and researchers.
