Regular PaperThe allometry of fluctuating asymmetry in southern African plants: flowers and leaves
It is argued that condition-dependence of traits need not result in a negative relationship between size and asymmetry, and that expression of these traits is condition-dependent.
Fluctuating asymmetry in Alpine chamois horns: an indicator of environmental stress
It was found in this relatively monomorphic species that both male and female horns were equally affected by climate, substrate, and local population density, thus showing that large male secondary sexual characters are not the only traits which can be influenced by a negative environment and exhibit increasing FA.
Low temperatures during ontogeny increase fluctuating asymmetry and reduce maternal aggression in the house mouse, Mus musculus.
The results suggest that low temperatures experienced during gestation and lactation may have important fitness costs, and FA appears to be a reliable indicator of chronic developmental stress with implications for fitness.
Fluctuating Asymmetry in the Saddle Patch Shape of the Pacific Ocean Killer Whale (Orcinus orca) Populations
It is suggested that small population size, development of reproductively isolated ecotypes and possible inbreeding as genetic factors are causing asymmetry in the southern resident population.
Behavioural Flexibility in a Small African Antelope: Group Size and Composition in the Oribi (Ourebia ourebi, Bovidae)
Polygynous O. ourebi in Serengeti appear to be primarily polygynous, with a moderate rate of yr-to-yr residency in particular groups, and with a low rate of long-term pairing between males and females.
Is use of translocation for the conservation of subpopulations of oribi Ourebia ourebi (Zimmermann) effective? A case study
In South Africa, the oribi, Ourebia ourebi is an endangered small antelope that requires conservation management and intervention to prevent their extinction. Use of translocation for the
Reintroduction Failure of Captive-Bred Oribi (Ourebia ourebi)
Monitoring of the success of the reintroduction of captive-bred oribi in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa found predation by natural predators and humans was a major factor, and no further reintroductions on to this property were advised.
