Male mating success in relation to food availability in the common goby
Abstract:In a feeding experiment with the common goby Pomatoschistus microps, there was no female preference for well-fed males, although these males had a higher mating success. This suggests that care should be taken about drawing conclusions regarding mate choice and mating success based on mate preference tests alone.
