The Mate Market

Did you know male elephant seals defend a pack of females (harem) and the females will only mate with a male who has defended the harem? This is pretty similar to how human females pick a male partner for resources for the well-being of their offspring. Do you ever wonder what drives you to choose the partner you like or why you might be so picky with physical features? We had Doctor Ian Stephen who is a senior lecturer at Macquarie University from the Department of Psychology to find out more.
