1

95-97% of mammals show -- paternal investment

little

2

chimps and bonobos show no paternal investment though some -- is probable in chimps

paternal kin recognition

3

predictors of paternal care: -- paternity certainty

high

4

predictors of paternal care: -- benefits to offspring survival

high

5

predictors of paternal care: -- opportunity costs

low

6

-- paternity means investing in offspring you aren't genetically related to which is considered wasteful from the fitness perspective

misattributing

7

men should be more willing to invest when their investment --

matters

8

investment is less -- if it interferes less, or even coincides with future mating opportunities

costly

9

men's investment should be tempered by their probability of --

paternity

10

-- paternal confidence leads to less investment

lower

11

Strategy A: If infants looks more -- they may garner investment if the social father is not the biological father

anonymous

12

Strategy B: If infants -- father it might garner more investment by signaling paternity certainty

resembles

13

videotapes of mothers and their families after birth show that they allege -- resemblance

paternal

14

Anderson: men with higher paternity confidence should have -- actual paternity

higher

15

Do men alter their investments according to their paternity certainty? -- reports of investment dominate this literature and are therefore not very reliable

self

16

one clear comparison of investment and paternity comes from looking at --

fathers and stepfathers

17

genetic offspring of current mate

mating and parenting effort

18

genetic offspring of previous mate

parenting effort

19

step-offpring of current mate

mating effort

20

step-offspring of previous mate

neither mating or parenting effort

21

amount of money spent on children is highest for

genetic children of current mate

22

T/F: amount of money spent on genetic children of previous mate and stepchildren of current mate is about the same

true

23

time involvement with children is highest for

genetic children of current mate

24

T/F: time involvement with stepchildren of current mate is higher than that with genetic children of previous mate

true

25

-- resemblance is one potential cue of paternity (Apicella and Marlowe)

physical

26

men react more -- toward fictitious offspring whose faces were morphed to look more like their own

favorably

27

another cue to paternity is the perception of partner --

fidelity

28

men currently in a relationship with their child's mother report significantly -- investment than those no longer with the mother

more

29

Alvergne et al: raters were able to guess the true father with significant accuracy using facial cues but not

olfactory cues

30

T/F: women are worse than men at detecting odor similarities

true
