Subject: mate choice

These references report studies supporting Alvard's contentions
regarding the differences in male and female mate choice.  The Buss
paper reviews the literature and reports new data.  The Kenrick paper
presents results from the studies Alvard discusses.  Buss' recent book,
which I have yet to read, should be the definitive source to date.
