  1. doi request reprint Don't put all your eggs in one nest: spread them and cut time at risk
    Malte Andersson
    Department of Zoology, University of Gothenburg, Box 463, SE 405 30 Gothenburg, Sweden
    Am Nat 180:354-63. 2012
    ..Risk reduction by egg spreading may also play a role in the evolution of other breeding systems and taxa-for instance, polyandry with male parental care in some birds and fishes...
  2. ncbi request reprint Host-parasite kinship in a female-philopatric bird population: evidence from relatedness trend analysis
    Malte Andersson
    Department of Zoology, University of Gothenburg, SE 405 30 Goteborg, Sweden
    Mol Ecol 16:2797-806. 2007
    ..Absence of a population trend in female pairwise relatedness vs. distance implies that host-parasite relatedness is not only an effect of strong natal philopatry: some additional form of kin bias is also involved...
  3. ncbi request reprint Sexual selection and mate choice
    Malte Andersson
    Department of Zoology, University of Gothenburg, SE 405 30 Gothenburg, Sweden
    Trends Ecol Evol 21:296-302. 2006
    ..We identify where new techniques can help estimate the relative roles of the various selection mechanisms that might work together in the evolution of mating preferences and attractive traits, and in sperm-egg interactions...
  4. ncbi request reprint Reproductive tactics under severe egg predation: an eider's dilemma
    Malte Andersson
    Animal Ecology, Department of Zoology, University of Gothenburg, Box 463, SE 405 30, Goteborg, Sweden
    Oecologia 148:350-5. 2006
    ..Early nest attendance by eider females is estimated to increase clutch survival by about 20% in four-egg and 35% in five-egg clutches, albeit probably at a cost of smaller clutch size...
  5. pmc Host-parasite relatedness shown by protein fingerprinting in a brood parasitic bird
    M Andersson
    Department of Zoology, Goteborg University, Box 463, SE 405 30 Goteborg, Sweden
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 97:13188-93. 2000
    ..Relatedness and kin discrimination, which can be achieved by recognition of birth nestmates, therefore play a role in these tactics and probably influence their success...

    M Andersson
    Department of Zoology, University of Gothenburg, Goteborg, Sweden
    J Evol Biol 16:510-5. 2003
    ..There was no seasonal trend from sons to daughters in this species. When tested together, the two species differed significantly as predicted by the hypothesis of adaptive sex ratio adjustment by females...

    Sofia Anderholm
    Department of Zoology, University of Gothenburg, Box 463, SE40530 Gothenburg, Sweden
    Mol Ecol 18:4955-63. 2009
    ..Females laying late parasitic eggs tended to be less related to the host, but not significantly so. Our results suggest that CBP in barnacle geese might represent different tactical life-history responses...

    Oecologia 165:707-12. 2011
