Analyses the evolutionary implications of symmetry and argues that symmetry is an indication of genetic stability and fitness, and that symmetric individuals appear to have quantifiable and significant advantages over their asymmetric counterparts. The mechanical functions of symmetry in bilateral structures are explained, and symmetry as an honest signal of quality in a social or sexual situation is discussed, drawing on examples from the animal, bird, and plant worlds.
