Completing the set: ‘coupon-collection behavior’ reduces sex-ratio variation among families
A new analysis of sibling records from more than 300,000 individuals suggests that some parents continue to reproduce until they have children of both sexes.
The practice, which the two University of Michigan biologists who conducted the study dubbed “coupon-collection behavior” in human reproduction, appears to have increased in popularity in recent decades and reduces the amount of sex-ratio variation among families.
We strive to support our students and faculty on the front lines of learning and research and to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, EEB needs your support.
