Variability for a day or a season Species that experience larger seasonal climatic fluctuations are likely to be more physiologically flexible and thus likely to occur across a wider elevational… Expand
Genome‐wide differentiation in closely related populations: the roles of selection and geographic isolation
Population divergence in geographic isolation is due to a combination of factors. Natural and sexual selection may be important in shaping patterns of population differentiation, a pattern referred… Expand
Group provisioning limits sharing conflict among nestlings in joint-nesting Taiwan yuhinas
Offspring often compete over limited available resources. Such sibling competition may be detrimental to parents both because it entails wasted expenditure and because it allows stronger offspring to… Expand
Unfavourable environment limits social conflict in Yuhina brunneiceps.
Identifying the factors that modulate cooperative and competitive behaviours is the key to understanding social evolution. However, how ecological factors affect social conflict and their fitness… Expand
Reproductive Skew in Vertebrates: Reproductive skew in avian societies
Reproductive Conflict and the Costs of Social Status in Cooperatively Breeding Vertebrates
Conflict over reproduction is an inherent part of group living. In many social vertebrates, conflict may be reflected as allostatic load, or the costs of social status and dominance rank, which may… Expand
A missing model in reproductive skew theory: the bordered tug-of-war.
Models of reproductive skew can be classified into two groups: transactional models, in which group members yield shares of reproduction to each other in return for cooperation, and tug-of-war… Expand
Reproductive skew theory unified: the general bordered tug-of-war model.
Reproductive skew has been identified as a major dimension along which animal societies vary. Two major kinds of reproductive skew models are transactional models, which explain the distribution of… Expand
The ecology of cooperative breeding behaviour.
Ecology is a fundamental driving force for the evolutionary transition from solitary living to breeding cooperatively in groups. However, the fact that both benign and harsh, as well as stable and… Expand

How abiotic and biotic factors constrain distribution limits at the harsh and benign edges of species ranges is hotly debated, partly because macroecological experiments testing the proximate causes… Expand
