    Marina Panova
    Department of Marine Ecology Tjarno, University of Gothenburg, Stromstad, Sweden
    PLoS ONE 5:e9640. 2010
    ..The prevalent explanation for this is that the cost of additional matings exceeds the benefits of receiving sperm from a large number of males. Here we demonstrate, however, a strongly deviating pattern of polyandry...
