Post-copulatory sexual selection in mammals. To complete a book ( to be published by Cambridge University Press) detailing the roles played by sperm competition and cryptic female choice in the evolution of mammalian reproduction.

Post-copulatory sexual selection in mammals. This will i nvolve comparative analyses of patterns of copulatory behaviour, reproductive anatomy, and physiology in the monotremes, marsupials and eutherians. I expect this to take the next three years ( I've given myself a firm deadline (pardon the pun. I'm not getting any younger!).

A truly integrated approach combined with a strong evolutionary theme distinguishes this from any other text on sexual selection and human mate choice. Provides a critical, non-polemic synthesis of both new and established ideas, including controversial hypotheses arising from work in evolutionary psychology. Revisits the early insights of Darwin on the 200th anniversary of his birth. Sexual Selection and the Origins of Human Mating Systems.

Fundamental to the origin of species is the evolution of mate choice systems

Comparative analyses of the anatomy, reproductive physiology, and behaviour of extant primates and other mammals can offer important insights into the origins of human sexual behaviour, allowing us to reconstruct the origins of human mating systems, the evolution of sexual attractiveness, patterns of mate choice, and copulatory behaviour.

Comparative analyses of the anatomy, reproductive physiology, and behaviour of extant primates and other mammals can offer important insights into the origins of human sexual behaviour, allowing us to reconstruct the origins of human mating systems, the evolution of sexual attractiveness, patterns of mate choice, and copulatory behaviour. Sexual Selection and the Origins of Human Mating Systems provides a modern synthesis of research on the evolution of human mating systems, bringing together work on reproductive physiology, behavioural biology, anthropology, primatology, palaeontology, evolutionary psychology, and sexological research. The approach taken is genuinely cross-disciplinary in scope, and provides a fascinating account of the effects of sexual selection upon human evolution in the light of the latest advances in the field.
