  1. pmc Mendel's law reveals fatal flaws in Bateman's 1948 study of mating and fitness
    Patricia Adair Gowaty
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of California, Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA, USA
    Fly (Austin) 7:28-38. 2013
    ..We highlight overlooked alternative hypotheses to urge that modern tests of Bateman's conclusions go beyond confirmatory studies to test alternative hypotheses to explain the relationship between mate number and reproductive success...
  2. doi request reprint Bayesian animals sense ecological constraints to predict fitness and organize individually flexible reproductive decisions
    Patricia Adair Gowaty
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, and Institute of Environment and Sustainability, Los Angeles, CA 90095, USA
    Behav Brain Sci 36:215-6. 2013
    ..Our ecological/evolutionary models of ultimate causes seem consistent with Clark's ideas and thus suggest an opportunity for a unified proximate and ultimate theory of Bayesian animal brains, senses, and actions...
  3. pmc No evidence of sexual selection in a repetition of Bateman's classic study of Drosophila melanogaster
    Patricia Adair Gowaty
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and Institute of the Environment, University of California, Los Angeles, CA 90095, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 109:11740-5. 2012
    ..Bateman's methodology mismeasured fitness variances that are the key variables of sexual selection...
  4. pmc The evolution of multiple mating: Costs and benefits of polyandry to females and of polygyny to males
    Patricia Adair Gowaty
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and Institute of Environment and Sustainability, Los Angeles, CA, USA
    Fly (Austin) 6:3-11. 2012
    ..I particularly urge the study of many more Drosophila species both in laboratory and the wild to understand the "nature of flies in nature," where opportunities and constraints mold evolutionary responses...
  5. pmc Polyandry increases offspring viability and mother productivity but does not decrease mother survival in Drosophila pseudoobscura
    Patricia Adair Gowaty
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and Institute of the Environment, University of California, Los Angeles, CA 90095, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 107:13771-6. 2010
    ..To our knowledge, this is the first study to examine simultaneously in outbred WT Drosophila pseudoobscura the lifetime costs and benefits to females of polyandry, monogamy with a single copulation, and monogamy with repeat copulations...
  6. pmc Reproductive decisions under ecological constraints: it's about time
    Patricia Adair Gowaty
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and Institute of the Environment, University of California, Los Angeles, CA 90095, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 106:10017-24. 2009
    ..The primary prediction of the SPT is that each decision a focal individual makes is determined jointly by e, s, l, n, and the w distribution...
