Title: Mating system, mate preference and rarity of blonde prairie voles, microtus ochrogaster
Author(s): Getz, Lowell L.; Pizzuto, Theresa M.
Subject(s): Reproductive system Integumentary system Population genetics Ecology Voles Animal behavior Behavioral biology
Abstract: Rarity of the blonde color morph in prairie vole populations is attributed to: a recessive trait requiring breeding between siblings or parents and their offspring for the color morph to be prominent within a population; the mating system of the prairie vole which results in suppression of reproduction between family members, except for young that have dispersed from the natal nest; and a mate preference of blondes for normal-colored individuals and of normal-colored individuals for blondes, which reduces probability of mating between blonde siblings that have dispersed from the natal nest.
