Shackelford English | 14 Feb. | ISBN: | Pages | PDF | 3 MB In species with internal fertilization, sperm competition occurs when the sperm of two or more males simultaneously occupy the reproductive tract of a female and compete to fertilize an egg.

This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm by: In monogamous species, both sexes may have intrasexual competitions for mates and be highly choosy. Importantly, the mechanisms of sexual selection do not operate in isolation; thus, it is important to consider both male–male competition and mate choice as well as their post-copulatory equivalents, sperm competition, and cryptic female choice.

    Sperm Competition in Humans: Classic and Contemporary Readings: : Shackelford, Todd K., Pound, Nicholas: Books. In species where females mate with multiple males, the sperm from these males must compete to fertilise available ova. Sexual selection from sperm competition is expected to favor opposing adaptations in males that function either in the avoidance of sperm competition (by guarding females from rival males) or in the engagement in sperm competition (by increased expenditure on the Cited by:

Sperm Competition in Humans: Classic and Contemporary Readings Todd K. Shackelford, Nicholas Pound This volume presents the intricate ways in which sperm compete to fertilize eggs and how this has prompted reinterpretations of breeding behavior from a biological perspective.

Over the past decade, there has been a vast amount of interest in the subject of human sperm competition. This volume brings together, in one place, a key set of classic and contemporary papers that have examined possible adaptations to sperm competition in humans.

Sperm Competition and the Evolution of Animal Mating Systems describes the role of sperm competition in selection on a range of attributes from gamete morphology to species mating systems. This book is organized into 19 chapters and begins with the conceptualization of sperm competition as a subset of sexual selection and its implications for the insects.

Sperm competition theory predicts that inves tment in sperm production will vary with sperm competition risk across species (Parker,a, b), and adaptations to high levels of s perm. Adaptation to Sperm Competition in Humans Todd K.
