Analyzing the evolution of social and sexual systems has usually focused on ecology (as the agent of selective pressures) and genes (as the units of inheritance,the key to genetic relatedness,and the progenitors of phenotypic variation).To the extent that phenotypic traits are not just the outcome of evolution but also place limits on evolutionary trajec- tories, they also play a causal role in how . The evolution of sexual systems in Crustacea has great relevance to the reproductive adaptation of different species to diversified ecological niches. By far, sequential hermaphroditism is the most common among the alternative sexual systems of crustaceans.
PDF | On Jun 1, , Stephen C. Weeks and others published Evolutionary Ecology of Social and Sexual Systems: Crustaceans as Model Organisms. Edited by J. Emmett Duffy and Martin Thiel. BOOK REVIEW DOI: /X Emmett Duffy, J. and M. Thiel (eds.). Evolutionary Ecology of Social and Sexual Systems: Crustaceans as Model Organisms. Understanding of animal social and sexual evolution has seen a renaissance in recent years with discoveries of frequent infidelity in apparently monogamous species, the importance of sperm competition, active female mate choice, and eusocial behavior in animals outside the traditional social insect groups. Each of these findings has raised new questions, and suggested new answers about . This book synthesizes the state of the field in crustacean behavior and sociobiology and places it in a conceptually based, comparative framework that will be valuable to active researchers and students in animal behavior, ecology, and evolutionary biology.
