Animals have diverse strategies that improve the success of their offspring after mating (i.e. post-fertilization reproductive strategies); the most common ones are parental care and offspring provisioning. The type, mode and duration of parental care exhibited by males and females depend on social and nonsocial environment, and on genetic and phylogenetic constraints. We overview five rapidly developing areas of parental care research, and conclude that sexual conflict between parents, social interactions and environmental conditions play important roles in determining post-fertilization reproductive strategies.
