  • The Evolution of Lateralization in Group Hunting Sailfish. 

    Kurvers, RHJM; Krause, S; Viblanc, PE; Herbert-Read, JE; Zaslansky, P; Domenici, P; Marras, S; Steffensen, JF; Svendsen, MBS; Wilson, ADM; Couillaud, P; Boswell, KM; Krause, J (England, 2017-02-20)
    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 ...
  • How sailfish use their bills to capture schooling prey. 

    Domenici, P; Wilson, ADM; Kurvers, RHJM; Marras, S; Herbert-Read, JE; Steffensen, JF; Krause, S; Viblanc, PE; Couillaud, P; Krause, J (England, 2014-06-07)
    The istiophorid family of billfishes is characterized by an extended rostrum or 'bill'. While various functions (e.g. foraging and hydrodynamic benefits) have been proposed for this structure, until now no study has ...
  • Injury-mediated decrease in locomotor performance increases predation risk in schooling fish. 

    Krause, J; Herbert-Read, JE; Seebacher, F; Domenici, P; Wilson, ADM; Marras, S; Svendsen, MBS; Strömbom, D; Steffensen, JF; Krause, S; Viblanc, PE; Couillaud, P; Bach, P; Sabarros, PS; Zaslansky, P; Kurvers, RHJM (England, 2017-08-19)
    The costs and benefits of group living often depend on the spatial position of individuals within groups and the ability of individuals to occupy preferred positions. For example, models of predation events for moving ...
  • Proto-cooperation: group hunting sailfish improve hunting success by alternating attacks on grouping prey. 

    Herbert-Read, JE; Romanczuk, P; Krause, S; Strömbom, D; Couillaud, P; Domenici, P; Kurvers, RHJM; Marras, S; Steffensen, JF; Wilson, ADM; Krause, J (England, 2016-11-16)
    We present evidence of a novel form of group hunting. Individual sailfish (Istiophorus platypterus) alternate attacks with other group members on their schooling prey (Sardinella aurita). While only 24% of attacks result ...
