    Intersex people are individuals born with any of several variations in sex characteristics including chromosomesgonadssex hormonesor genitals that, according to the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights"do not fit the typical definitions for male or female bodies". Intersex people were previously referred to as hermaphrodites or "congenital eunuchs". It was the first attempt at creating a taxonomic classification system of intersex conditions.

    Intersex people were categorized as either having true hermaphroditismfemale pseudohermaphroditismor male pseudohermaphroditism. Intersex people face stigmatization and discrimination from birth, or from discovery of an intersex trait, such as from puberty.

    This may include infanticide, abandonment and the stigmatization of families. However, this is considered controversial, with no firm evidence of favorable outcomes. Adults, including elite female athletes, have also been subjects of such treatment. Some intersex persons may be assigned and raised as a girl or boy but then identify with another gender later in life, while most continue to identify with their assigned sex. Intersex people are born with sex characteristics including genitals, gonads and chromosome patterns that do not fit typical binary notions of male or female bodies.

    Intersex is an umbrella term used to describe a wide range of natural bodily variations. In some cases, intersex traits are visible at birth while in others, they are not apparent until puberty. Some chromosomal intersex variations may not be physically apparent at all. In biological terms, sex may be determined by a number of factors present at birth, including: [30]. People whose characteristics are not either all typically male or all typically female at birth are intersex. Some intersex traits are not always visible at birth; some babies may be born with ambiguous genitals, while others may have ambiguous internal organs testes and ovaries.

    Others will not become aware that they are intersex unless they receive genetic testing, because it does not manifest in their phenotype. Whether or not they were socially tolerated or accepted animales any particular culture, the existence of intersex people was known to many ancient and pre-modern cultures.

    The Greek historian Diodorus Siculus wrote of the mythological Hermaphroditus in the first century BCE, who was "born with a physical intersexo which is a combination of that of a man and that of a woman", and reputedly possessed supernatural properties. In European societies, Roman lawpost-classical canon lawand later common lawreferred to a person's sex as animales, female or hermaphrodite, with legal rights as male or female depending on the characteristics that appeared most dominant.

    Some of these cultures, for instance the South-Asian Hijra communities, [39] may include intersex people in a third gender category. Although—according to Morgan Holmes —early Western anthropologists categorized such cultures "primitive," Holmes has argued that analyses of these cultures have been simplistic or romanticized and fail to take account of the ways that subjects intersexo all categories are treated.

    During the Victorian era animales, medical authors introduced the terms " true hermaphrodite " for an individual who has both ovarian and testicular tissue, "male pseudo-hermaphrodite" for a person with testicular tissue, but either female or ambiguous animales anatomy, and "female pseudo-hermaphrodite" for a person with ovarian tissue, but either male or ambiguous sexual anatomy. Some later shifts in terminology have reflected advances in genetics, while other shifts are suggested to be due to pejorative associations.

    The term intersexuality was coined by Richard Goldschmidt in Since the rise of modern medical science, some intersex people with ambiguous external genitalia have had their genitalia surgically modified to resemble either female or male genitals. Surgeons pinpointed intersex babies as a "social emergency" when born. Dialogue between what were once antagonistic groups of activists and clinicians has led to only slight changes in medical policies and how intersex patients and their families are treated in some locations.

    Human rights institutions are placing increasing scrutiny on harmful practices and issues of discrimination against intersex people. These issues have been addressed by a rapidly increasing number of international institutions including, inthe Council of Europe, the United Nations Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights and the World Health Organization. These developments have been accompanied by International Intersex Forums and increased cooperation amongst civil society organizations.

    However, the implementation, codification, and enforcement of intersex human rights in national legal systems remains slow. Stigmatization and discrimination from birth may include infanticide, abandonment, and the stigmatization of families.

    As noted in the "Intersex human rights" page, the birth of an intersex child was often viewed as a curse or a sign of a witch mother, especially in parts of Africa.

    Infants, children and adolescents also experience "normalising" interventions on intersex persons that are medically unnecessary and the pathologisation of variations in sex characteristics. In countries where the human rights of intersex people have been studied, medical interventions to modify the sex characteristics of intersex people have still taken place without the consent of the intersex person.

    Such intersexo have been criticized by the World Health Organization, other UN bodies such as the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, and an increasing number of regional and national institutions due to their adverse consequences, including trauma, impact on sexual function and sensation, and violation of rights to physical and mental integrity. People born with intersex bodies are seen as different, intersex infants, children, adolescents and adults "are often stigmatized and subjected to multiple human rights violations", including discrimination in education, healthcare, employment, sport, and public services.

    Access to informationmedical records, peer and other counselling and support. With the rise of modern medical science in Western societies, a secrecy-based model was also animales, in the belief that this was necessary to ensure "normal" physical and psychosocial development.

    The Asia Pacific Forum of National Human Rights Institutions states that legal recognition is firstly "about intersex people who have been issued a male or a female birth certificate intersexo able to enjoy the same legal rights as other men and women. A Kenyan court case in established the right of an intersex boy, "Baby A", to a birth certificate. Like all individuals, some intersex individuals may be raised as a certain sex male or female but then identify with another later in life, while most do not.

    Research in the late 20th century led to a growing medical consensus that diverse intersex bodies are normal, but relatively rare, forms of human biology. Foremost, we advocate use of the terms "typical", "usual", or "most frequent" where it is more common to use the term "normal.

    Emphasize intersexo all of these conditions are biologically understandable while they are statistically uncommon. Some people with intersex traits self-identify as intersex, and some do not. Some intersex organizations reference "intersex people" and "intersex variations or traits" [94] while others use more medicalized language such as "people with intersex conditions", [95] or people "with intersex conditions or Intersexo differences of sex development " and "children born with variations of sex anatomy".

    A hermaphrodite is an organism that has both male and female reproductive organs. Until the midth century, "hermaphrodite" was used synonymously with "intersex".

    Currently, hermaphroditism is not to be confused with intersex, as the former refers only to a specific phenotypical presentation of sex organs and the latter to a more complex combination of phenotypical and genotypical presentation.

    Using hermaphrodite to refer to intersex individuals is considered to be stigmatizing and misleading. Members of the Lawson Wilkins Pediatric Endocrine Society and the European Society for Paediatric Endocrinology adopted this term in their "Consensus statement on management of intersex disorders". Alternatives to categorizing intersex conditions as "disorders" have been suggested, including "variations of sex development".

    Intersex can be contrasted with homosexuality or same-sex attraction. Intersex can therefore be contrasted with animales[] which is the condition in which one's gender identity does not match one's assigned sex.

    The relationship of intersex to lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans, and queer communities is complex, [] but intersex people are often added to LGBT to create an LGBTI community. Emi Koyama describes how inclusion of intersex in LGBTI can fail to address intersex-specific human rights issues, including creating false impressions "that intersex people's rights are protected" by laws protecting LGBT people, and failing to acknowledge that many intersex people are not LGBT.

    Television works about intersex and films about intersex are scarce. Intersex peer support and advocacy organizations have existed since at leastwith the establishment of the Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome Support Group Australia in Intersex Awareness Day is an internationally observed civil awareness day designed to highlight the challenges faced by intersex people, occurring annually on 26 October.

    It marks the first public demonstration by intersex people, which took place in Boston on 26 Octoberoutside a venue intersexo the American Academy of Pediatrics was holding its annual conference. Intersex Day of Remembrancealso known as Intersex Solidarity Day, is an internationally observed civil awareness day designed to highlight issues faced by intersex people, occurring annually on 8 November. In HinduismSangam literature uses the word pedi to refer to people born with an intersex condition; it also refers to antharlinga hijras and various other hijras.

    In Islamscholars of Islamic jurisprudence have detailed discussions on the status and rights of intersex based on what mainly exhibits in their external sexual organs.

    Yet, modern Islamic jurisprudence scholars turn to medical screening to determine the dominance of their sex. The intersex rights include rights of inheritance, rights to marriage, rights to live like any other male or female.

    The intersexo are generally based on whether they are true hermaphrodites or pseudohermaphrodite. Scholars of Islamic jurisprudence generally consider their rights based on the majority of what appears from their external sexual organs. In Judaismthe Talmud contains extensive discussion concerning the status of two intersex types in Jewish law; namely the androgynouswhich exhibits both male and female external sexual organs, and the tumtum which exhibits neither.

    In the s and s, the treatment of intersex babies started to be discussed in Orthodox Jewish medical halacha by prominent rabbinic leaders, for example Eliezer Waldenberg and Moshe Feinstein. In Anitismthe wife of Bathalathe supreme god of the Tagalog peoplewas the hermaphrodite deity Lakapati, who served as queen of the celestial abode and court called Kaluwalhatian.

    She was also the ancient deity of fertility and is highly regarded as the Tagalog pantheon's most important feminine figure. Her relationship with the supreme god, Bathala, was symbolic for the ancient Tagalogs as it animales to marriage as a mutual bond between two parties regardless of gender, which was a common practice at the time.

    The chant and prayer portrayed Lakapati as an all-powerful deity who had control of one's life. Prominent among deities who received full-blown sacrifices, Lakapati is fittingly represented by a hermaphrodite image with both male and female parts intersexo was worshiped in the fields at planting time. Her bodily expression is notably feminine. The ancient Tagalogs believed that the hermaphrodite image of Lakapati depicted the "balance of everything".

    During early Spanish rule, Lakapati was depicted as the Holy Spirit, as the people continued to revere her despite Spanish threats. Modern interpretations have stated that Lakapati was transgender, although in a historical context, Lakapati was known as a hermaphrodite or intersex and not a transgender person. The South African middle-distance runner Caster Semenya won gold at the World Championships in the women's metres and won silver in the Summer Olympics.

    The results were not released. Semenya was ruled eligible to compete. Katrina KarkazisRebecca Jordan-YoungGeorgiann Davis and Silvia Camporesi have claimed that IAAF policies on "hyperandrogenism" in female athletes, are "significantly flawed", arguing that the policy will not protect against breaches of privacy, will require athletes to undergo unnecessary treatment in order to compete, and will intensify "gender policing".

    They recommend that athletes be able to compete in accordance with their legally recognised gender. In Aprilthe BMJ reported that four elite animales athletes with 5-ARD an intersex medical condition were subjected to sterilization and "partial clitoridectomies" in order to compete in sport.

    The authors noted that partial clitoridectomy was "not medically indicated" and "does not relate to real or perceived athletic 'advantage'. There are few firm estimates of the number of intersex people.

    The now-defunct Intersex Society of North America stated that:. If you ask experts at medical centers how often a child is born so noticeably atypical in terms of genitalia that a specialist in sex differentiation is called in, the number comes out to about 1 in to 1 in births [0.

    The genetic benefits of mate choice are limited by the degree to which male and female fitness are genetically correlated. If the intersexual correlation for fitness is small or negative, choosing a highly fit mate does not necessarily result in high fitness offspring. Simulations show this estimate to be robust in sign to the effects of extra-pair parentage. The genetic benefits in this population are further limited by a low level of genetic variation for fitness in males.

    The potential for indirect sexual selection is nullified by sexual antagonistic fitness effects in this natural population.

    Our findings and the scarce evidence from other studies suggest that the intersexual genetic correlation for lifetime fitness may be very low in nature. We argue that this form of conflict can, in general, both constrain and maintain sexual selection, animales on the sex-specific additive genetic variances in lifetime fitness.

Competing interests: The authors have declared that no competing interests exist. In a sexual population, the expected wnimales in mean fitness across generations is given by the additive genetic variance in lifetime fitness [1]and other traits will evolve as a correlated response to this change [2].

    The additive genetic variance in fitness is thus an important quantity in evolutionary biology, because without such variance individuals belonging to future generations will not become better adapted to the environment as compared to their ancestors. Intersexo, intrsexo genetic animales rarely take into account that males and females may have different animales genetic variance for fitness, despite the fact that the few studies that have calculated sex-specific additive genetic coefficients of variation for lifetime fitness in wild populations suggest there are differences between the sexes in this respect Table 1.

    Further, genes that perform well in males may not do well in females, and vice versa. Recent work has shown that fitness genes may often be sexually antagonistic, with positive effects in one sex, but neutral snimales even harmful effects in the other sex [3] — [7].

    Sexual antagonism and intedsexo mechanisms can cause the genetic correlation between male and female fitness to be small or even negative [8][9]. In this paper, we explore how the intersexual genetic correlation for fitness affects the potential for indirect sexual selection. We begin by reviewing a model that specifies that the critical parameters itersexo estimating the force of indirect selection on mating preferences from empirical data are the intersexoo additive genetic variances in lifetime reproductive success LRS and its genetic correlation between the sexes.

    We then estimate these quantities in the collared flycatcher Ficedula albicollis. We have previously [10] shown that a component of fitness is positively correlated across the sexes, but we here explicitly consider lifetime fitness integsexo incorporate the effects extra-pair paternity has on the genetic estimates. Our results indicate that the genetic correlation between male and female lifetime fitness is not large and positive, as is typically implicitly assumed, but is low and negative in sign.

    We argue that this is consistent with the general animapes that is currently emerging, and we discuss the consequences such an intersexual genetic correlation may have for our understanding of sexual selection. Mating preferences may evolve through animales sexual selection by a number of potential processes. In a Fisher—Zahavi process [11]males display a heritable secondary sexual trait ornament that acts as a sexual signal, and females have a heritable preference for such ornaments.

    The ornament is either attractive per se [1] or carries a cost handicap and therefore shows the individual's ability to function despite this handicap [12]. Hence, by mating with a highly ornamented male, a female intersexo that her offspring inherits intersexo their father the genes that allow him to function despite the ornament's handicap. In a good-genes process, a female chooses a male for his positive genetic contribution to her offspring's fitness.

    The latter process includes more varied pathways by which positive genetic effects on fitness can be mediated, intersexo the two scenarios are not animales exclusive [11][13] and both of them imply—from a animales genetic point of view—an additive genetic correlation between male ornament and lifetime fitness [14][15].

    That is, the breeding value i. Kirkpatrick and Animles [16] derived a theoretical expression for the change in mating preferences due to indirect sexual selection that makes quite general assumptions regarding genetics and behavior. The results apply to any mating system, aninales type of mate choice behavior, and any number of genes affecting the female preference, male ornament, and lifetime fitness.

    Animalea main restrictions are intersexo genes have mainly additive action, that linkage between them not be too tight, and that individual alleles not have very large fitness effects.

    Here we assume that the loci contributing to genetic variation in lifetime fitness are autosomal, but it is possible to allow for sex-linked genes as well. Results derived by [16] show that the potential for indirect selection animales genetic benefits for a female mating preference depend on three factors.

    The first is the accuracy with which females choose males that have high fitness genotypes. The second is the amount of genetic variation for lifetime fitness in males and females. The third factor is the degree to which a genotype that produces high fitness in males also produces high fitness when expressed in females. We here focus on this latter aspect.

    Minor modifications to Equation 2 in ref. The next two parameters, h 2 P and h 0are respectively the heritability of the preference and the square root of the inteersexo of the ornament. The quantity r m OW is the genetic correlation between the male ornament and male lifetime fitness. Together this first group of terms reflects the accuracy with which female preference genes become associated with genes that produce high fitness in males. Because this first group of terms are correlations and heritabilities, with a maximum of one, the bracketed expression of animales 1 sets the maximal potential change in mate preference.

    Inside the parentheses of equation 1 are two terms corresponding to the indirect selection on preference genes produced by selection on lifetime fitness in males and in females. The quantities and are the additive genetic coefficients of variation for lifetime fitness in females and males, respectively.

    The quantity r mf W is the genetic correlation between lifetime fitness in males and females. This equation draws attention to two key empirical questions. The first concerns the magnitudes of the genetic variances for male fitness and female fitness. The second is the degree to which a genotype that produces high fitness in males will also give high fitness when expressed in females.

    If the correlation intersexo mf W is large and positive, for example, then females mating with high fitness males can expect on average to have high fitness sons and daughters. On the other hand, if the genetic correlation between male and female fitness is negative, then a female who mates with a high fitness male will on average animales high fitness sons but low intersexo daughters. This can diminish or even eliminate the potential for indirect genetic benefits to mate choice. The additive genetic variance of males was low, and the estimated coefficient of additive genetic variation in females was therefore almost double the males' coefficient Table 2indicating that the potential for evolution in this population may primarily be determined in females.

    Our results further show that the estimated genetic correlation in LRS between male and female collared flycatchers was negative, and clearly animales lower than unity, as judged by a likelihood ratio test Table 2. Given the proportionally low amount of additive genetic effects in LRS, especially in males, there were large confidence intervals around the estimate of the genetic correlation.

    However, our results show that breeding values for lifetime performance do not have the same ranking order in male and female collared flycatchers, and show evidence of antagonistic effects across the sexes. The low intersexual genetic correlation essentially nullified any possibility for indirect sexual selection to operate, since the weighted average of the male and female coefficient of additive genetic variation intresexo expression in equation 1 ] became very low and slightly negative 0.

    Collared flycatchers engage in extra-pair mating. We explored how sensitive our conclusions are for such errors by simulating two EPP scenarios. Our first scenario considered EPP to be random, and in a second simulation scenario paternity of recruits was directionally assigned to contemporary local males that had a broader forehead patch than the social father see Methods.

    As expected, our estimate of female additive genetic variance was not much affected by simulating EPP, with deviations distributed symmetrically around the original estimate Itnersexo. Directional assignment tended to reduce female additive genetic variance somewhat Fig. Male additive genetic variances tended to diminish rather than increase Fig. Overall, the negative sign of the genetic correlation in LRS between the sexes proved to be a robust feature of the system, since none of the simulations indicated that incorporation of EPP could change this correlation to a positive one Fig 1C, 1F.

    Because a correlation is proportional to the inverse of the standard deviations of the underlying variables, reasonable correlations were only found when male additive genetic effects were fairly large r s between male additive genetic variance and the genetic correlation was 0.

    The values based on the social pedigree Table 2 are indicated with an arrow. Calculating the weighted average of the coefficients of additive genetic variation in LRS [bracketed expression intersexo equation 1 ] for each of the models produced an average of anlmales. Because directional assignment tended to reduce the female additive genetic correlation and increase the genetic correlation, the resulting total coefficient became more positive, 0.

    Nevertheless, these estimates confirm that this quantity is likely to be low. Most importantly, sexually antagonistic effects much reduced the total coefficient of additive genetic variation in LRS compared to the sex-specific coefficients Table 2. Sexual selection concerns both sexes, and must acknowledge the evolutionary dynamics of both males and females and any interaction between them.

    Indirect genetic benefits that come from mate choice depend not only on how genes that a female chooses in her mate are expressed in males her sonsbut also on their effects in females her daughters. Indirect selection on preferences will be reduced if there is limited genetic variation for fitness in either males or females. Indirect sexual selection will also be diminished if the intersexo correlation between male and female lifetime fitness is small or negative.

    Our results suggest that both of these mitigating circumstances are at work in collared flycatchers. Using over twenty years of individual-based records of collared flycatchers, we estimate the genetic correlation in LRS between the sexes, and find this to be negative in sign although not significantly different from zero. We further find an indication of a larger sex-specific coefficient of additive genetic variation in female than in ainmales LRS.

    Together these quantities act to essentially nullify the scope of indirect sexual selection on mate choice in this species. Our review of theory illustrates how important the sex-specific additive genetic co variances are for a proper understanding of evolutionary dynamics.

    Animales the other hand, our review of empirical studies and our own results underline that quantification of lntersexo co variances typically deals with small effect sizes that are not significantly different from zero.

    Except in female collared flycatchers, lifetime fitness has not been shown to be significantly heritable in the wild Table 1. Clearly, only small genetic effects are expected for lifetime fitness, because selective processes will have largely eroded these intetsexo.

    Statistical techniques that have been developed to estimate quantitative genetic parameters, such integsexo the animal model, calculate an unbiased estimator for the effects that genes have. Despite their low statistical significance, the intesexo presented in this and other quantitative genetic studies on lifetime fitness Table 1 provide our best understanding of processes that are key to understanding evolution in the wild. We find that the intersexual genetic correlation in LRS is significantly below one see also [9]indicating that fitness effects of genes expressed in males are not positively correlated to their effects in females.

    Much of the literature on sexual selection and evolution intersexo general implicitly assumes that genetic fitness effects correspond closely across the sexes.

    In a sexual population, there are several factors which may cause the intersexual genetic correlation for fitness to be substantially less than 1. Firstly, male and female evolutionary interests need not align, and there has been growing awareness of the existence of sexually antagonistic genetic effects [3] — [7][9].

    Such sexual conflict will strongly reduce the intersexual genetic correlation for fitness [8]. A low intersexual genetic correlation in fitness will have consequences for evolutionary dynamics in general, because selection in one sex will be counteracted by the selection on those genes in the other sex.

    A proper measure for an evolutionary aanimales between the sexes is based on lifetime performance [15][16]. This is because components of animalez are likely to trade-off against each other, such that any particular component may poorly reflect total fitness.

    In Drosophila melanogasterthe intersexual genetic correlation based on a juvenile fitness component was positive, but changed to a negative correlation for the adult fitness component, thereby nullifying the genetic correlation between the sexes for total fitness [4].

    In collared flycatchers, annual fitness a component of LRS is positively genetically correlated across the sexes [10]whereas LRS is negatively correlated between sexes this study. Possibly, conflict builds up across the trait continuum of morphology to life history, although conclusive evidence for this assertion from a single study system currently is lacking.

    Sex-specific gene expression may be a second factor contributing to a low intersexual genetic correlation. Traits that are expressed only in one sex can contribute to genetic variance for fitness in that sex but will decrease the fitness correlation between sexes. Many genes coding for traits involved in reproduction i. For example, the seasonal timing ej laying has important selective consequences, but is not affected by males in this collared flycatcher population [19].

    Females are the heterogametic sex in birds and intersexo life-history traits, which act to enhance fitness, may even be sex-chromosome linked c.

The primary mechanism he proposed to explain this fact was natural selection: that is, that organisms better adapted to their environment would benefit from higher rates of survival intersexo those less well equipped to do so. However he noted that there were many examples of elaborate, anikales apparently non-adaptive, sexual traits that would clearly not aid in the survival of their bearers.

    He suggested that such traits might evolve animales they are sexually selected, that is if they increase the individual's reproductive success, even at the expense of their survival Darwin Darwin noted that sexual anumales animales on the struggle between males to access females.

    He recognized two mechanisms of sexual selection: intrasexual selection, or competition between members of the same sex usually males for access to mates, and intersexual selection, where animales of one sex usually females choose members of the opposite sex. The idea of cumbersome traits evolving to aid males in competition during aggressive encounters was readily accepted intersexo scientists shortly after Darwin's publication.

    However, the idea of female mate choice was received with ridicule, and was not seriously reconsidered until nearly 80 years later Cronin In the 40 years since, there has been much progress in our understanding of how sexual selection operates. Sex roles are defined by differences in gametes: females produce relatively few, highly nutritious usually non-motile gametes, whereas males produce comparatively abundant, smaller, motile gametes.

    Because only a single gamete of each type is required to produce intsrsexo offspring, there will be an excess of male gametes that will not fertilize any eggs. This asymmetry leads to Bateman's principle, whereby female reproduction is primarily limited by their access to resources to nourish and produce these large gametes, whereas male reproduction is mainly limited by access to females Bateman Therefore males typically compete among themselves for access to females, whereas females tend to be choosy and mate only with preferred males.

    In sexually reproducing species, every offspring has one father and one mother, so the average reproductive success is equal for both males and females. A animales male can potentially sire many offspring. If a male gains a disproportionate share of reproduction, he will take away reproductive opportunities from other males, leading to a high intersexo variance among males. A successful female, on the other hand, will not take away reproductive opportunities from other females, leading to a smaller variance in animales success.

    The higher the reproductive variance, the stronger the effects of sexual selection Figure 1. Strong sexual selection typically results in sexually dimorphic traits that are exaggerated, or more elaborate, in the animalss with highest reproductive variance Figure 1. Differences in the selection gradient will result in sexual dimorphism. A When males are subject to stronger sexual selection than females, males will evolve secondary sexual characters that result in marked differences between the sexes.

    Peacocks do not provide any parental animales, and some males are more successful than others who may jntersexo reproduce, leading to marked dimorphism. B When males contribute to offspring care, the selection animales is lower and the sexes will be monomorphic. Many seabirds are monogamous and raise offspring together and the sexes are indistinguishable. C When males provide all the parental care, the selection gradient can be reversed and females may have to compete for access to males, leading to reverse sexual dimorphism.

    Red-necked phalaropes compete for access to males who provide all the parental care. Females are larger and more aggressive than males. Courtesty of Arthur Grosset. Evidence of female choice intersexo good genes remains scarce despite decades of studies intersexo female mate choice in many taxa. This apparent lack of success continues to create debate as to the importance of the good genes model in the field.

    Sexual selection can affect reproductive success at multiple reproductive stages. First, it acts during all the processes that lead to acquiring mating opportunities i.

    Darwin referred exclusively intersexo pre-copulatory sexual selection in his discussions, erroneously assuming that mating would inevitably result in reproductive success. In recent years, evidence that copulatory and post-copulatory events play an important role in determining the outcome of fertilization and reproduction has been increasing. Post-copulatory selection refers to the events that occur during and after mating. Post-copulatory male-male competition is known intersdxo sperm competition a term coined by Parker who recognized that when females mate with multiple males, their ejaculates compete inside the female reproductive tract for access to eggs.

    Post-copulatory female choice refers to the ability of females to affect the likelihood that sperm from a particular male fertilizes their eggs, and their decision to invest in offspring based intersexo the identity of the male with whom they mate.

    Females exert this choice via morphological, chemical and behavioral adaptations. This type of selection is called cryptic choice because it occurs inside the female reproductive tract and cannot be detected from behavioral studies alone Eberhard Although both sexes are seeking to optimize their reproductive success, their genetic interests are not aligned, resulting in inetrsexo conflict Parker Traits intersexo allow a male to increase his reproductive success at the expense of the female will be positively selected if the female mates with multiple males.

    Animqles traits will be genetically transmitted and spread in the population, despite their negative effects on female reproductive success, if the reproductive success of these males is higher than that of males lacking such traits Parker Sexual conflict can often result in an evolutionary arms animales, whereby the evolution of a trait that animales harm on one sex will result in evolution of a counter-trait to mitigate the harm on the affected sex, with subsequent escalation in both Chapman et animalez.
