ABSTRACT
The study of alternative reproductive behaviors in fishes has contributed to our
general understanding of reproductive strategies and mating systems. Despite
extensive research on the mechanisms and patterns of alternatives, two important
factors have not been addressed, and both may strongly influence the evolution of
alternative reproductive behaviors. First, alternative female reproductive behav-
iors exist and should be considered in theoretical and empirical work. Second,
interactions between the sexes will influence the evolution of alternative repro-
ductive behaviors. In this review, we explore these two points and suggest the
