Abstract

Theoretical issues surrounding female choice are reviewed, and the empirical evidence and conceptual implications derived from studies of amphibians are summarized. The chapter concludes with a review of mating system structure theory, and contributions from work with amphibians. The goal is to assess the most significant contributions of studies on amphibians to theories of sexual selection and mating systems, rather than present an exhaustive review of all such studies in the Amphibia. -from Authors
