INTRODUCTION Sexual selection theory predicts that female mammals should preferentially mate with high quality males, choosing the sire of their offspring for direct benefits, that increase female survival or fecundity, or indirect (genetic) benefits that increase offspring viability and/or attractiveness (Andersson 1994). Traditionally, the role of female mate choice, especially in polygynous mammals, has been considered negligible compared with male-male competition. However, on the basis of the relatively higher level of maternal to paternal investment and generally lower potential rates of reproduction the females of most mammal species could be expected to select their mating partners (Trivers 1972; Clutton-Brock and Vincent 1991).
