Adultchatadultchat - Polyandrous dating
Fraternal polyandry was traditionally practiced among Tibetans in Nepal, parts of China and part of northern India, in which two or more brothers are married to the same wife, with the wife having equal "sexual access" to them.For example, polyandry in the Himalayan mountains is related to the scarcity of land.
The potential for different female mating strategies among large, polygynous mammals has generally been overlooked.
Our findings highlight the complexity of female reproductive strategies and the possible trade-offs between fertilization success, preferences for high-quality males, and potential costs of polyandry, particularly for monotocous species.
Some forms of polyandry appear to be associated with a perceived need to retain aristocratic titles or agricultural lands within kin groups, and/or because of the frequent absence, for long periods, of a man from the household.
In Tibet the practice was particularly popular among the priestly Sakya class.
The hypotheses used to explain its persistence have rarely been tested in the wild and particularly for large, long-lived mammals.
