Foraging syndromes and trait variation in antlions along a climatic gradient

  title={Foraging syndromes and trait variation in antlions along a climatic gradient},
  author={Yehonatan Alcalay and Inon Scharf and Ofer Ovadia},
Behavioral syndromes arise when individual behavior is correlated over time and/or across environmental contexts, often resulting in inter-population behavioral differences. Three main hypotheses have been suggested to explain the evolution of behavioral syndromes. The constraint hypothesis suggests that behaviors originate from a shared mechanism with a strong genetic or physiological basis. In contrast, according to the adaptive hypothesis, behavioral syndromes depend on specific selective… CONTINUE READING
