Two roads to two sexes: unifying gamete competition and gamete limitation in a single model of anisogamy evolution

Kokko, Hanna; Lehtonen, Jussi


Recent studies have revealed the importance of self-consistency in evolutionary models, particularly in the context of male-female interactions. This has been largely ignored in models of the ancestral divergence of the sexes, i. e., the evolution of anisogamy. Here, we model the evolution of anisogamy in a Fisher-consistent context, explicitly taking into account the number of interacting individuals in a typical reproductive group. We reveal an interaction between the number of adult...[Show more]
