Jul 15, 1977 · Science 15 Jul 1977: Vol. 197, Issue 4300, pp. 215-223 DOI: 10.1126/science.327542. Jun 16, 2009 · Darwin on Mating Systems. Darwin contributed two separate discussions on mating systems. The first concerned animal mating systems ().Here Darwin explained the diversity of male and female phenotypes attributable to the “special circumstances” in which sexual selection occurs (see above), confirming his understanding that sexual differences arose within this context.Cited by: 124.

Read chapter 10 Sexual Selection and Mating Systems--Stephen M. Shuster: Two Centuries of Darwin is the outgrowth of an Arthur M. Sackler Colloquium, spon. Ecology, Sexual Selection, and Evolution of Mating Syst Stephen T. Emlen and Lewis W Mating systems (1) were first dis- cussed in evolutionary terms by Darwin (2). Since then, major developments in genetic theory have allowed a better un- derstanding of sex ratios, sexual di- .

Secondarily, we wish to highlight the relevance of An. gambiae and Ae. aegypti as model systems for studying the evolution of mating systems. Determining the secondary sexual characters under selection provides an opportunity to understand the selective pressures that shape those characters.Cited by: 5. Sexual Selection and the Origins of Human Mating Systems provides a modern synthesis of research on the evolution of human mating systems, bringing together work on reproductive physiology, behavioural biology, anthropology, primatology, palaeontology, evolutionary psychology, and sexological research. The approach taken is genuinely cross 5/5(1).

Sexual selection and mating systems Over a century ago, Charles Darwin provided a robust explanation for behavioral and morphological differences between the sexes, the theory of sexual selection. But how can we explain variation, and even discrete morphs, within a single sex of a single species?
