QUIZ 7


Why is male monogamy perceived as darwinian puzzle?



Male monogamy is a Darwinian puzzle because polygynous males generally have  access to more eggs to fertilize than monogamous males

The Fertility Insurance Hypothesis states: that mating with several males reduces the  risk of having an impotent partner leaving her infertile

Female Defense Polygyny is when males directly defend several maters, whereas  Resource Defense Polygyny is when a male attracts females through their resources that they  control

A bunch of women enter a club to try and have a meet and greet with Liam Hemsworth.  Knowing that there is going to be an over abundance of women at the club, John Doe and his  Brother Bob Doe decide to go to the club and pick up women. John and Bob are using the  Hotshot Hypothesis.  


When does female defense polygyny occur?



John Doe and Bob Doe could not get into the club (Bob decided to wear sneakers and a  tacky shirt...c'mon Bob) so instead of going inside the club to meet women, they decided to go  to a known 24/7 eatery where they knew all of the women go to eat after exiting the club. This  tactic is best explained by the Hotspot Hypothesis.

Jill Doe is meeting a lot of great guys, but she is finding it very hard to compare and  choose between them. She has met each of them individually, but never in the same day where  she can make an in the moment good decision. She decides to invite them to a bar, where they  will all be in the same room, so she can decide through quick comparison. This tactic is best  explained by the Female Preference Hypothesis. We also discuss several other topics like If someone buys a lemon car, do they get their money back?
We also discuss several other topics like What is proven by the first law of thermodynamics?

Why do mother's have a bigger need to take care of their offspring? Because the  mother has put many resources into birthing her offspring she must see to their successful  development and she does not want all her sacrifices to be in vain.


Which tactic is best explained by hotspot hypothesis?



A male would engage in parental care to allow the female to go out in forage and  increase in size because an increase in size increases her fecundity.  

These two options are displays of parental favoritism: feeding the first Hatched  larvae more than the secondary hatched larvae and feeding the stronger looking offspring instead of the sickly, weak looking offspring Don't forget about the age old question of How does cross-merchandising promote a product?
If you want to learn more check out What does it take to be a fully socialized member of the society?
Don't forget about the age old question of How do taxes affect supply?
We also discuss several other topics like What is chromosome movement?

Siblicide would cause tension in the family because the parents genetic pass on rate  has been dropped due to the death of a child. If there were 6 chicks and 1 died, the genetic  pass on rate dropped from 6 chicks passing on the genetics to now only 5.
