Abstract

Human activities have resulted in rapid and significant changes to environments worldwide, from destruction of habitat and global warming to the overharvesting of native species and the introduction of exotics. All of these changes can profoundly impact animal mating systems. In this article, we begin by providing an overview of the diversity of mating systems and how they are sensitive to environmental conditions. We then consider the many ways in which human-induced changes to the environment might impact animal mating systems, before discussing the ecological and evolutionary consequences that such changes engender.
