My dissertation addresses fundamental questions regarding the evolution, maintenance, and expression of alternative male mating tactics using the yellow dung fly. This work incorporates field- and mesocosm-based behavioral studies with molecular techniques to quantify fitness consequences of alternative behavioral and life history strategies.
