This lecture will show that the same mating systems characterize birds and mammals of East Africa, where even equivalents of “bachelor pads” and the strategy of using owned resources, like wealth, to attract temporary or permanent mating partners occur. Questions like why monogamy is the rule in birds but the exception in mammals will be analyzed.
