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


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]
