Behavioural reaction norms: animal personality meets individual plasticity.
Recent studies in the field of behavioural ecology have revealed intriguing variation in behaviour within single populations. Increasing evidence suggests that individual animals differ in theirExpand

Behavioural syndromes differ predictably between 12 populations of three-spined stickleback.
Animals often differ in suites of correlated behaviours, comparable with how humans differ in personality. Constraints on the architecture of behaviour have been invoked to explain why suchExpand

Large–scale geographical variation confirms that climate change causes birds to lay earlier
Advances in the phenology of organisms are often attributed to climate change, but alternatively, may reflect a publication bias towards advances and may be caused by environmental factors unrelatedExpand

Evolutionary tipping points in the capacity to adapt to environmental change
Significance Environmental variation is becoming more frequent and unpredictable as a consequence of climate change, yet we currently lack the tools to evaluate the extent to which organisms mayExpand

Food allocation among nestling starlings: sibling competition and the scope of parental choice
Parental provisioning for nestling birds is generally considered to be an interactive, conflictive process because the optimal provisioning rate differs between parents and young and becauseExpand

Chick Begging Strategies in Relation to Brood Hierarchies and Hatching Asynchrony
Altricial offspring solicit food by begging, and their parents feed them according to begging intensity, which has been shown to be positively related to offspring need. Parent‐offspring geneticExpand

A method for exploring the structure of behavioural syndromes to allow formal comparison within and between data sets
Research on behavioural syndromes (consistent individual differences in suites of correlated behaviours) requires formal statistical methods to describe and compare syndrome structures. We detail theExpand
