Adaptive flexibility, testosterone, and mating fitness: Are low FA individuals the pinnacle of evolution?

  • Michael R. Cunningham (a1)

The expansion of human evolutionary theory into the domain of personal and environmental determinants of mating strategies is applauded. Questions are raised about the relation between fluctuating asymmetry (FA), testosterone, and body size and their effects on male behavior and outcomes. Low FA males' short-term mating pattern is considered in the context of an evolved tendency for closer and longer human relationships.
