Alternative Reproductive Tactics
An Integrative Approach
by Jane Brockman and Rui Oliveira
Edition: 1st., 2008
The study of alternative reproductive tactics (ARTs) is a hot topic in evolutionary and behavioral ecology. ART refers to consistent variation in the reproductive behavior (involving, e.g., mating, nesting, fighting) of males or females within one population. This variation offers a special opportunity to study the evolution and functional causes of phenotypic variation, a general problem in evolutionary biology. A large body of published data exists on ARTs, but there has been no conceptual unification of the available information, nor any strong effort to integrate it into a general framework.
