Callander, Sophia; Hayes, Catherine; Jennions, Michael; Backwell, Patricia

Description

If female mate choice is based on comparison of locally available mates rather than absolute, fixed criteria, a male's attractiveness might depend on the attractiveness of his immediate competitors. We use robotic models to test whether the number of fema
