A major new look at the evolution of mating decisions in organisms from protozoans to humans The popular consensus on mate choice has long been that females select mates likely to pass good genes to offspring. In Mate Choice, Gil Rosenthal overturns much of this conventional wisdom. Providing the first synthesis of the topic in more than three decades, and drawing from a wide range of fields, including animal behavior, evolutionary biology, social psychology, neuroscience, and economics, Rosenthal argues that "good genes" play a relatively minor role in shaping mate choice decisions and demonstrates how mate choice is influenced by genetic factors, environmental effects, and social interactions. Looking at diverse organisms, from protozoans to humans, Rosenthal explores how factors beyond the hunt for good genes combine to produce an endless array of preferences among species and individuals. He explains how mating decisions originate from structural constraints on perception and from nonsexual functions, and how single organisms benefit or lose from their choices. Both the origin of species and their fusion through hybridization are strongly influenced by direct selection on preferences in sexual and nonsexual contexts. Rosenthal broadens the traditional scope of mate choice research to encompass not just animal behavior and behavioral ecology but also neurobiology, the social sciences, and other areas. Focusing on mate choice mechanisms, rather than the traits they target, Mate Choice offers a groundbreaking perspective on the proximate and ultimate forces determining the evolutionary fate of species and populations.

Sabrina simply wanted a normal life. Raised by an emotionally unstable mother and a father who was an angry and violent drunk, Sabrina spent most of her young life feeling alone and scared. Her older brother, Brad, was her only ally as the two endured this difficult life together. When her family moved to a small town in Oklahoma, Sabrina lost the safety she felt with her old friends. However, she and Brad soon became close with Samantha and Joe, two local kids that gave them the support they so desperately needed.

The teacher in this story was a short stocky lady, who, though mentally challenged had an uncanny ability to teach. She could not, or rather would not carry a conversation, but she did have the tenacity to cause those around her to learn whatever she was teaching: What she wished to eat; where she wanted to go; who would be her companion. Her name was Cheryl. Cheryl's mother, Beverly, was 39 when she took a tumble down a flights of steps while exiting a building where she had been the evenings keynote speaker. That fall did not show the full penalty immediately. It would be three more years before Beverly would be diagnosed as having Multiple Sclerosis. That disease would take everything from her.
