Data from: Relatedness and age reduce aggressive male interactions over mating in domestic fowl

Charlotte Rosher, Anna Favati, Rebecca Dean & Hanne Lovlie
Altruistic behaviour represents a fundamental challenge in evolutionary biology. It is often best understood through kin selection, where favourable behaviour is directed towards relatives. Kin selection can take place when males cooperate to enhance the reproductive success of relatives. Here, we focus on reduced male–male competition over mating as a case of cooperation, by examining male tolerance of matings by related and unrelated competitors. A suitable model for exploring whether relatedness affects male–male interactions over...
