Overview

"Sexual Strategies is a gem: a beautifully researched and concise introduction to animal mating systems and the clearest available account on the biology of female choice."-Sarah Blaffer Hrdy, PhD
Emeritus Professor of Anthropology, University of California, Davis and author of Mother Nature: A History of Mothers, Infants, and Natural Selection

Sexual Strategies explores the complexities of the mating game from fruit flies to humans and explains why females are in charge. By determining which males mate and father offspring, females play a directive role in evolution. Fascinating examples reveal the biology underlying courtship, deception, love, and sexual conflict.
