Good genes and parental care in human evolution

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (4):611-612 (2000)
Abstract
Prior to agriculture, human societies were small, with little variation for good genes sexual selection (GGSS) to work on. Across cultures, variation in paternal care makes the benefits of GGSS highly variable. Despite these caveats, female preferences for traits like male body symmetry suggest one reason for female short-term mating is gene shopping.
