Figure 3

Likelihood to mate. The likelihood to mate in P. taeniatus was significantly explained by the relative body size distance of pairs (see equation 1 and Results section for statistics). An equal distance was measured in four pairs (filled gender symbols), thus 20 instead of 24 data points are shown. Gender symbols reveal whether the male (male symbol) or the female (female symbol) was relatively larger in a pair. In one case an equal distance between pairs with a relatively larger male and a relatively larger female was measured (male and female symbol combined).
