How do various behaviors of social dominance and courtship display affect the evolutionary process? Socially dominant males have a higher rate of copulation than that of the lower males in addition; socially dominant males have a higher success rate of reproducing and passing on their genetic make-up or DNA to their offspring. With that in mind the genetic makeup of the dominant species will determine the evolutionary path of the species. Relations with these species can also determine a new makeup of species depending on the compatibility of the two. One example would be that having one species that has a certain way of courtship compared to specie that is more familiar with another way would essentially isolate themselves from the remainder of the species.
This also determines the time of interaction socially between the different sexes can also have a huge impact on a specific species. One example would be that if males and females isolate themselves from one another then courtship would more likely to become a failure. Now if they lived more in proximity to on another courtship between them would more likely happen and possibly more frequently. We also have to take into consideration that even with some species such as the praying mantis who after mates kills the male. This would have a huge impact on human procreation if that was the case.
