Our new research (undertaken in collaboration with Martin Whiting and his lizard lab at Macquarie University) about polyandry in eastern water dragons has now been published in Ecology and Evolution! We showed that female polyandry was the norm, and found no evidence that females favor less related males, or that less related males had higher fitness.
