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 ...
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)
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 ...
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 ...
Avian predators transmit fear along the air-water interface influencing prey and their parental care
© 2016, Canadian Science Publishing. All rights reserved. The nonconsumptive consequences of predators on prey behavior, survival, and demography have recently garnered significant attention by ecologists. However, the ...
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. ...
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 ...
