Paul Burkhart 4. Female behavior in sexual selection is much different than males. A female must exercise greater care in selection of her mate. She must be willing to test out possible suitors before committing her eggs to his sperm. She must be certain first that he can fertilize the egg. Next, she asks what the quality of his genes is. This is usually judge by his “high survival abilities” and his individual fitness. In addition she assesses the quality of his care for her and his parental care. All of these varied factors play a part in evolving sexuality and stable mating systems. 5. Parents may train – or try to train their offspring to be altruistic toward each other or to the parents, beyond the altruism based on kin selection. For example, termites are eusocial but diploid. It appears that by pheromones the queen termite suppresses female workers’ production and guides their solicitude for her and the termite colony. By forcing her workers to be sterile, she reserves all rights of genetic reproduction to herself. 6. Reciprocal Altruism is when an individual offers assistance to another and expects future aid in return.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
