A correlation between mating
success and features of individual males, such as size, dominance, or display, is not sufficient evidence for direct choice of these features by females.

Effect of Mating
Frequency on Longevity of Females and Males
When yeast cells decide to mate, they must know that there is a mating
partner close enough, and then make a snap decision to get ready to mate", said first author and graduate student Mohan Malleshaiah.
In various studies, he and a colleague compared aspects of mating
, for example, the length of time that the snails courted before copulating, when snails mated with and without dart piercing.
Female mate choice may be expected to vary depending on the mating
system of the species (Arnold 1994; Arnold & Duvall 1994; Lorch 2002).
BEHAVIORAL Species may not understand each other's mating
and "courting" language.

Previous intraspecific comparisons have demonstrated female mating
discrimination, often favoring males from the same population.

The total number of eggs laid during the experimental period was greatest in the treatment with 3 mates (104 eggs), followed by 2 mates (75 eggs), single mate--single mating
(60 eggs) and single mate--multiple matings

London, March 21 ( ANI ): Male fruit flies consistently change their mating
behaviour depending on whether they have spent time with other males before mating
, according to a new study.
Darwin (1877) was the first to discuss sexual selection and its relationship to the evolution of mating
Previous experiments have demonstrated that males not mating
within 30 min are unlikely to do so subsequently (Hu & Morse 2004).
If that preference makes no sense to the average human male who's entranced by young, smooth-skinned women, it's because the mating
game has evolved in different directions in chimps and in people, say anthropologist Martin N.
