Life-history trade-offs favour the evolution of animal personalities
In recent years evidence has been accumulating that personalities are not only found in humans but also in a wide range of other animal species. Individuals differ consistently in their behaviouralExpand

Evolution of Fighting Behaviour: Decision Rules and Assessment of Relative Strength
Abstract A mathematical model of fighting behaviour is developed. The contestants belong to a population with varying fighting abilities and the fights consist of the repetition of one type ofExpand

The Effect of Flexible Growth Rates on Optimal Sizes and Development Times in a Seasonal Environment
The interrelationships among development time, growth rate, and adult size are investigated using simple optimization models of a seasonal life history in which larger adults have greaterExpand

A test of the sequential assessment game: fighting in the cichlid fish Nannacara anomala
Many species have a repertoire of behaviour patterns that are used in contests over resources. It is likely that the function of these behaviour patterns is the assessment of asymmetries between con-Expand

Evolution of cooperation through indirect reciprocity
How can cooperation through indirect reciprocity evolve and what would it be like? This problem has previously been studied by simulating evolution in a small group of interacting individuals,Expand

Evolution of fighting behaviour: The effect of variation in resource value
A number of empirical studies have shown that animals adjust their fighting behaviour when resource value is changed. We apply evolutionary game theory to investigate how variation in resource valueExpand

The evolution of fatal fighting
The evolution of fatal fighting was investigated using evolutionary game theory. General considerations about the lifetime consequences of fighting behaviour are first discussed. A sequentialExpand

Multidimensional convergence stability
Questions: Are there general stability conditions for the evolution Of Multidimensional traits, regardless of genetic correlations between traits? Can genetic correlations influence whether evolutiExpand

Disruptive selection and then what?
Disruptive selection occurs when extreme phenotypes have a fitness advantage over more intermediate phenotypes. The phenomenon is particularly interesting when selection keeps a population in aExpand

Evolutionary Stability of Aposematic Coloration and Prey Unprofitability: A Theoretical Analysis
Species that have evolved some defense against predators, here called unprofitable prey, often show aposematic (warning) coloration. The process whereby a predator learns not to attack unprofitableExpand
