Another factor that can influence male-male competition is the value of the resource to competitors. The concept was first articulated by Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace who described it as driving species adaptations and that many organisms had evolved features whose function was deleterious to their individual survival,  and then developed by Ronald Fisher in the early 20th century.
He accepted that sexual selection mechanism of sex determination in plants ppt in Fort Worth occur, but argued that it was a relatively weak form of selection.

Malinowski E. A classic example of female choice and potential runaway selection is the long-tailed widowbird. Another difference from vegetative axillary meristems is that the floral meristem is "determined", which means that, once differentiated, its cells will no longer divide. Evolutionary biology portal.
Smith B. When there is a high density of males in a population and a large number of males attempting to mate with the female, she is more likely to resist mating attempts, resulting in lower fertilization rates. Due to their sometimes greatly exaggerated nature, secondary sexual characteristics can prove to be a hindrance to an animal, thereby lowering its chances of survival.
AP2 not only mechanism of sex determination in plants ppt in Fort Worth in the first two verticils, but also in the remaining two, in developing ovules and even in leaves. Hubbell and Johnson suggested that variance in reproductive success can be influenced by the time and allocations of mating.
As formulated in Bateman's principle, females have a greater initial investment in producing offspring pregnancy in mammals or the production of the egg in birds and reptiles , and this difference in initial investment creates differences in variance in expected reproductive success and bootstraps the sexual selection processes.
