Informed dispersal, heterogeneity in animal dispersal syndromes and the dynamics of spatially structured populations.
There is accumulating evidence that individuals leave their natal area and select a breeding habitat non-randomly by relying upon information about their natal and future breeding environments. ThisExpand

Ecological implications of behavioural syndromes.
Interspecific trait variation has long served as a conceptual foundation for our understanding of ecological patterns and dynamics. In particular, ecologists recognise the important role that animalExpand

Personality-dependent dispersal: characterization, ontogeny and consequences for spatially structured populations
Dispersal is one of the most fundamental components of ecology, and affects processes as diverse as population growth, metapopulation dynamics, gene flow and adaptation. Although the act of movingExpand

Personality traits and dispersal tendency in the invasive mosquitofish (Gambusia affinis)
Ecological invasions, where non-native species spread to new areas, grow to high densities and have large, negative impacts on ecological communities, are a major worldwide problem. Recent studiesExpand

Animal personalities are common across taxa and have important evolutionary and ecological implications. Such consistent individual differences correlate with important life-history traits such asExpand

Personality-dependent dispersal in the invasive mosquitofish: group composition matters
Understanding/predicting ecological invasions is an important challenge in modern ecology because of their immense economical and ecological costs. Recent studies have revealed that within-speciesExpand

Carotenoid-based coloration, oxidative stress and corticosterone in common lizards
SUMMARY Environmental factors including stressors, health status and social context significantly affect carotenoid-based coloration. For instance, stressors may induce the diversion of carotenoidsExpand

Mating order-dependent female mate choice in the polygynandrous common lizard Lacerta vivipara
Recent studies indicate that directional female mate choice and order-dependent female mate choice importantly contribute to non-random mating patterns. In species where females prefer larger sizedExpand

Carotenoid-Based Colours Reflect the Stress Response in the Common Lizard
Under chronic stress, carotenoid-based colouration has often been shown to fade. However, the ecological and physiological mechanisms that govern colouration still remain largely unknown. ColourExpand

Genetics of dispersal
Dispersal is a process of central importance for the ecological and evolutionary dynamics of populations and communities, because of its diverse consequences for gene flow and demography. It isExpand
