Early and late developmental arrest as complementary embryonic bet‐hedging strategies in African killifish
The production of dormant eggs is a crucial adaptation for African killifish of the genus Nothobranchius to survive in temporary waters. These habitats are often characterized by unpredictableExpand

Combined effects of cadmium exposure and temperature on the annual killifish (Nothobranchius furzeri).
Freshwater organisms are increasingly exposed to combinations of stressors. However, because it is time-consuming and costly, research on the interaction of stressors, such as compound toxicity andExpand

Intermediate number of major histocompatibility complex class IIB length variants relates to enlarged perivisceral fat deposits in the blunt‐head cichlid Tropheus moorii
Studying the genetic basis of host–parasite interactions represents an outstanding opportunity to observe eco‐evolutionary processes. Established candidates for such studies in vertebrates areExpand

Contrasting parasite communities among allopatric colour morphs of the Lake Tanganyika cichlid Tropheus
BackgroundAdaptation to different ecological environments is thought to drive ecological speciation. This phenomenon culminates in the radiations of cichlid fishes in the African Great Lakes.Expand

A link between host dispersal and parasite diversity in two sympatric cichlids of Lake Tanganyika
A major goal in ecology is to unravel how species assemblages emerge and how they are structured across the landscape. Host-parasite systems are particularly interesting in this context, as limitedExpand

Life stage dependent responses to desiccation risk in the annual killifish Nothobranchius wattersi.
To assess whether the annual killifish Nothobranchius wattersi responds plastically to a desiccation risk and whether this response is life stage dependent, life-history traits such as maturationExpand

Acute and chronic sensitivity to copper of a promising ecotoxicological model species, the annual killifish Nothobranchius furzeri.
Nothobranchius furzeri is a promising model for ecotoxicological research due to the species' short life cycle and the production of drought-resistant eggs. Although the species is an emergingExpand

Individual behavioral variation reflects personality divergence in the upcoming model organism Nothobranchius furzeri
Abstract In the animal kingdom, behavioral variation among individuals has often been reported. However, stable among‐individual differences along a behavioral continuum—reflective of personalityExpand

Improving the reliability and ecological validity of pharmaceutical risk assessment: Turquoise killifish (Nothobranchius furzeri) as a model in behavioral ecotoxicology.
Pharmaceuticals are essential for human well-being, but their increasing and continuous use pollutes the environment. Although behavioral ecotoxicology is increasingly advocated to assess the effectsExpand

Interactive effects of 3,4-DCA and temperature on the annual killifish Nothobranchius furzeri.
Although aquatic organisms are increasingly exposed to pollutants and abnormally high temperatures as a consequence of climate change, interactive effects between those stressors remain poorlyExpand
