Using probability modelling and genetic parentage assignment to test the role of local mate availability in mating system variation
Blyton, Michaela; Banks, Samuel; Peakall, Rodney; Lindenmayer, David B
The formal testing of mating system theories with empirical data is important for evaluating the relative importance of different processes in shaping mating systems in wild populations. Here, we present a generally applicable probability modelling framework to test the role of local mate availability in determining a population's level of genetic monogamy. We provide a significance test for detecting departures in observed mating patterns from model expectations based on mate availability...[Show more]
