Exploring the Spectrum: Diversity in Reproductive Biology and Sex across the Animal Kingdom

Exploring the Spectrum: Diversity in Reproductive Biology and Sex across the Animal Kingdom

Saturday, June 22, 1:00 –3:00 p.m.

In the animal kingdom, reproductive strategies and sexual characteristics show incredible diversity. From mating rituals to reproductive systems, understanding this variation is key to unraveling evolution’s mysteries. In this lecture, we explore this diversity, starting with sexual differences like size and coloration driven by mate selection and competition. Moving beyond traditional ideas of sex, we look at unconventional strategies and their advantages. We delve into various mating systems, driven by ecological and social factors, showcasing the diverse adaptations and their implications for evolutionary biology.
