Life-History Consequences of Adaptation to Larval Nutritional Stress in Drosophila
Many animal species face periods of chronic nutritional stress during which the individuals must continue to develop, grow, and/or reproduce despite low quantity or quality of food. Here, we useExpand

Learning Ability and Longevity: A Symmetrical Evolutionary Trade-Off in Drosophila
Abstract Learning ability can be substantially improved by artificial selection in animals ranging from Drosophila to rats. Thus these species have not used their evolutionary potential with respectExpand

Reduced learning ability as a consequence of evolutionary adaptation to nutritional stress in Drosophila melanogaster
Abstract 1. Dietary conditions affect cognitive abilities of many species, but it is unclear to what extent this physiological effect translates into an evolutionary relationship.

No trade‐off between learning ability and parasitoid resistance in Drosophila melanogaster
Learning ability and immunity to parasites are linked at the physiological level in several insect species. The aim of this work was to investigate the relationship between learning and immunity atExpand

Modelling the evolution of common cuckoo host‐races: speciation or genetic swamping?
Co‐evolutionary arms races have provided clear evidence for evolutionary change, especially in host–parasite systems. The evolution of host‐specific races in the common cuckoo (Cuculus canorus),Expand
