Abstract Share this page

Experimental evidence suggests that female Cyprinodon variegatus do not select between competitively inferior and superior males, but rather, deposit eggs randomly and in proportion to the size of the male's territory. The females do seem to have an habitat preference and probably influence the location where males compete for territorial space.
