Since a father has, by definition, succeeded in the mating game, looking for males with similar features is a good strategy for finding good partners, according to study co-author Tucker Gilman, an evolutionary biologist at the University of Manchester in England.
“The idea is that if a female has a strategy that’s genetically encoded that causes her to look for mates that are similar to her father, then she gets the advantage of being better able to choose genes that are fit and sexy,” Gilman told ‘LiveScience’.
