Group breeding in vertebrates: linking individual- and population-level approaches
TLDR
An integrated method designed to categorize and explain a diversity of vertebrate social systems, with a focus on colonial breeding is described, demonstrating the power and utility of using individual-level decision making to explain larger-scale patterns of group living. Expand
Ancestry and evolution of seasonal migration in the Parulidae
TLDR
Counter to traditional hypotheses, the results suggest that the ancestral wood-warbler was migratory and that losses of migration have been at least as prevalent as gains throughout the history of Parulidae. Expand
Understanding spatial distributions: negative density-dependence in prey causes predators to trade-off prey quantity with quality
TLDR
It is suggested that predators commonly maximize their energy intake rates at intermediate prey densities, and prey density alone may thus poorly predict intake rates, carrying capacity and spatial distributions of predators. Expand
