Puffed and bothered: Personality, performance, and the effects of stress on checkered pufferfish.
Although consistent individual-level differences in behaviour are widespread and potentially important in evolutionary and ecological processes, relatively few studies focus on the physiological mechanisms that might ...
Effects of emergence time and early social rearing environment on behaviour of Atlantic salmon: consequences for juvenile fitness and smolt migration.
Consistent individual differences in behaviour have been well documented in a variety of animal taxa, but surprisingly little is known about the fitness and life-history consequences of such individual variation. In wild ...
Individual-level behavioral responses of immature green turtles to snorkeler disturbance.
Despite many positive benefits of ecotourism, increased human encounters with wildlife may have detrimental effects on wild animals. As charismatic megafauna, nesting and foraging sea turtles are increasingly the focus of ...
The Evolution of Lateralization in Group Hunting Sailfish.
Lateralization is widespread throughout the animal kingdom [1-7] and can increase task efficiency via shortening reaction times and saving on neural tissue [8-16]. However, lateralization might be costly because it increases ...
Activity syndromes and metabolism in giant deep-sea isopods
Improved performance, within-individual consistency and between-individual differences in the righting behaviour of the Caribbean sea star, Oreaster reticulatus
(Brill Academic Publishers, 2016-10-24)
Do intracoelomic telemetry transmitters alter the post-release behaviour of migratory fish?
© 2016 John Wiley & Sons A/S. Published by John Wiley & Sons Ltd Electronic tags have become a common tool in fish research, enhancing our understanding of how fish interact with their environment and move among different ...
Individual differences in activity and habitat selection of juvenile queen conch evaluated using acceleration biologgers
© The authors 2015. Fine-scale differences in behaviour and habitat use have important ecological implications, but have rarely been examined in marine gastropods. We used tri-axial accelerometer loggers to estimate activity ...
