    Proc Biol Sci 270:633-40. 2003
    ..Our results thus provide direct quantitative evidence that male reproductive success in wild populations of mammals is dependent upon the relative magnitude of both overt contest competition and covert sperm competition...

    ..We conclude that sperm competition is likely to be an important selection pressure explaining diversity in mammalian copulatory behaviour...
