Figure 4

Proportion of correct predictions of the preferred male as a function of the ideal size ratio. For a given size ratio (λ = ideal male size/female size), a female was assumed to prefer the male leading to the ratio that was the closest to this ideal one. The dashed curves show bootstrapped 95% confidence interval around the prediction. The horizontal dotted line shows random choice (one in three chances of choosing the preferred male).
