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 ...
Utility of biological sensor tags in animal conservation.
Electronic tags (both biotelemetry and biologging platforms) have informed conservation and resource management policy and practice by providing vital information on the spatial ecology of animals and their environments. ...
Does Angling Technique Selectively Target Fishes Based on Their Behavioural Type?
Recently, there has been growing recognition that fish harvesting practices can have important impacts on the phenotypic distributions and diversity of natural populations through a phenomenon known as fisheries-induced ...
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 influence of water temperature and accelerometer-determined fight intensity on physiological stress and reflex impairment of angled largemouth bass.
Release of fish captured by recreational anglers is a common practice due to angler conservation ethics or compliance with fisheries regulations. As such, there is a need to understand the factors that influence mortality ...
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)
How long is too long in contemporary peer review? Perspectives from authors publishing in conservation biology journals.
Delays in peer reviewed publication may have consequences for both assessment of scientific prowess in academics as well as communication of important information to the knowledge receptor community. We present an analysis ...
