By Rui F. Oliveira, Michael Taborsky, H. Jane Brockmann

The research of different reproductive strategies (the behavioural options utilized by contributors to extend their reproductive luck) is an evolutionary puzzle, and one in all nice curiosity to researchers. for example, why perform a little men defend either nest and eggs, whereas others sneak into nests whereas pairs are spawning and fertilise these eggs? the sector bargains a different chance to check the evolution and sensible factors of phenotypic edition, that is a common challenge within the box of evolutionary biology. through integrating either mechanistic (psychological) and evolutionary (behavioural ecology) views and via masking a superb range of species, substitute Reproductive strategies addresses this built-in subject of longstanding curiosity, bringing jointly a large number of another way scattered info in an obtainable shape that's perfect for graduate scholars and researchers.
