The Evolution of Alternative Tactics Alternative mating and nesting tactics and sex ratios are part of a much broader problem in evolution, the origin and maintenance of discrete, alternative phenotypes. I am interested in understanding the evolutionary factors that favor the appearance of discrete alternative behavior patterns in . Reproductive tactics can be mapped, to a limited extent, on to the spatial-temporal thermoregulation axis (Pianka ). Simple pair-wise product-moment correlation coefficients between the three reproductive variables and the slope-intercepts of body temperature regressions on air temperature are weak although generally statistically significant.

Alternative reproductive tactics (ARTs) refer to the consistent use of different reproductive behaviors between conspecifics of the Alternative Reproductive Tactics book sex in one population at the same : Carsten Schradin.
CHAPTER SUMMARY. In this chapter we explore the diversity of alternative reproductive tactics (ARTs) exhibited by reptiles. There is a rich literature on ARTs in a broad diversity of reptile lineages, and our contribution is therefore not an exhaustive by: 6.

An alternative mating strategy is a strategy used by male or female animals, often with distinct phenotypes, that differs from the prevailing mating strategy of their sex.
Such strategies are diverse and variable both across and within species. Animal sexual behaviour and mate choice directly affect social structure and relationships in many different mating systems, whether. An Integrative Approach.

Alternative strategies Two (or more) genetically based strategies of one sex that lead to Alternative Reproductive Tactics book (or more) alternative tactics. Mixed strategy. This alternative “sneaking” life history (early maturing, small body size) is thought to increase fitness in fish and mammal populations where reproductive success is normally size based.
Such alternative reproductive tactics serve to compensate, at least in part, for reduced reproductive success in early maturing individuals.

The effectiveness of alternative tactics for high-ranking males (i.e. consort disruption and possessive following) was equivocal. Consort disruption had no immediate effect on reproductive success.
Possessive following may have resulted in the siring of two offspring by the alpha male, but was ineffective in other cases, where the females were Cited by: Alternative Reproductive Tactics: An Integrative Approach Rui F.

Introduction. In species with strong male–male competition for females, individual males often adopt alternative reproductive tactics to maximize reproductive output within the constraints of social, demographic, and ecological conditions (Gross, ; Neff & Svensson, ).In male mammals, alternative reproductive tactics usually have unequal fitness payoffs; the most Cited by: 6.
Introduction. The existence of alternative reproductive behaviours in individuals of the same sex is widespread in nature.
Most of examples of alternative reproductive phenotypes are readily interpreted as alternative tactics within a conditional strategy, i.e., monomorphic individuals adopting one strategy or another, based on a condition-dependent trait, such as body size, fat.

GONC¸ALVES,RA,OR CHAPTER SUMMARY In this chapter, concepts derived from communication network theory are applied to the understanding of the evolution of signals in species with alternative reproductive tactics (ARTs). Alternative Reproductive Tactics One of the big questions in evolutionary biology is why there is variation within a species – why individuals don’t converge on a “best” type.
Alternative tactics (variation in any combination of behavioral and physical traits that result in distinct types within a species) provide a model system for. Alternative reproductive tactics and sexual selection Alternative reproductive tactics within the sexes are common in nature and often involve a territorial, courting tactic and a nonterritorial, sneaking tactic.
The evolution of such tactics is generally thought to increase the variance in reproductive success and thus increase the. At high densities, terrestrial and marine species often employ alternate reproductive tactics (ARTs) to maximize reproductive benefits.
We describe ARTs in a high-density and unfished spawning aggregation of the squaretail grouper (Plectropomus areolatus) in Lakshadweep, India.
