Abstract:

Females of a widespread species of the rock-dwelling haplochromine cichlids of Lake Malawi, Maylandia zebra, show preference for males that successfully evict intruding males from their territory. This behaviour, experimentally induced by the investigators in a laboratory setting, was also preferred over males that were not permitted to interact with any other individual.

Keywords: behaviour; haplochromine cichlids; male–male competition; mbuna; sexual selection
