Evidence for Female Mate Choice in Non-human Primates As previously noted, numerous primatologists (Dixon 1998; Keddy-Hector 1992; Paul 2001) now propose that females not only play a far more active role in sexual interactions but also display clear preferences for their mating partners, which suggests that female choice may be a far more powerful selective force among non-human primates than previously thought (Manson 1992). Despite the difficulty in assessing female primate mate preference a number of observational and experimental studies have been conducted and there is in fact, as Paul (2001) suggests, ‗considerable evidence for both direct and indirect forms of mate choice in non-human primates.
