Selection for multiple mating strategy. An initial population of females was set with equal numbers of alleles for mating with one or five males at varying population frequencies of a dominant helping allele (A). Females reproduced offspring in cohorts of five with an expected survival (s) of 0.5, 0.7 or 0.9 between cohorts. The population percentages of alleles for multiple mating are shown after one generation of reproduction. Each point represents the mean of 10,000 individual simulation runs.
