Low fluctuating asymmetry (FA) and short-term benefits in fertility?

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (4):610-611 (2000)
Preference for partners with low fluctuating asymmetry (FA) may produce “good gene” benefits. However, Gangestad & Simpson's analysis does not exclude immediate benefits of fertility. Low FA is related to fertility in men and women. Short-term changes in FA are correlated with fertility in women. It is not known whether temporal fluctuations in the FA of men are related to short-term fertility status.
