Evol. Franziska C. Schaedelin and Michael Taborsky Reproductive behavior is governed by sensitive periods of development during which testicular hormones serve as a type of ‘experience’ that masculinizes and defeminizes the brain and peripheral tissues (Phoenix et al., 1959; reviewed in Ward and Ward, 1985).

Females prefer shells that match their body size and males that occupy the largest shells therefore get the largest, most fecund females. G. Sander van Doorn, Pim Edelaar, Franz J.
