Henshaw, Jonathan


To understand how mating systems evolve, we depend on both (i) theoretical explanations and predictions, supported by mathematical modelling, and (ii) quantitative tools to test predictions rigorously. This thesis is divided equally between these two aims. The first three papers explore the evolution of mating systems using analytic and simulation models.
