In a field experiment, we studied how levels of aggression in males and females in established pairs of the Banggai cardinalfish were influenced by the sex of an experimentally introduced individual larger and more attractive than its resident counterpart. Contrary to previous studies on other cardinalfish species, and contrary to expectations in a sex role reversed species, the male was the main aggressor towards an intruder. Moreover, residents were more aggressive towards an intruder of the… Expand

Sex roles during conspecific territorial defence in the Zenaida dove, Zenaida aurita
TLDR
Overall, males responded to intrusions more frequently than females, and variation in reactivity of females to intruders was positively related to variation in intrusion pressure between trials, whereas no such trend was observed in males. Expand
Does sex influence intraspecific aggression and dominance in Nile tilapia juveniles?
TLDR
It is shown that sex effect of mature fish does not significantly affect intraspecific aggression in juveniles of the cichlid Nile tilapia and this issue has been neglected in juveniles. Expand

– The cardinal fish Apogon imberbis (Linnaeus, 1758) is a common species in the Mediterranean sea but its reproductive biology is poorly known. Here we present information on the duration of theExpand
Morphological and Behavioural Differentiation in a Pipefish
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the pipefish respond in the predicted direction in response to video playback, and as such proves to be a reliable method to study mate preferences in this species. Expand
Territorial defence by the Brazilian damsel Stegastes fuscus (Teleostei: Pomacentridae)
TLDR
Analysis of attacks elicited by different fish species placed within S. fuscus territory showed that it launched more attacks on conspecifics than on other fishes, and responded similarly to all intruding fish species. Expand
Influence of Mate Quality on Reproductive Decisions in a Fish with Paternal Care
TLDR
It is suggested that the up to now neglected effects of sexual selection, through both mate choice and sexual conflict, can have strong effects on the relationship between egg size and parental care in fishes. Expand
The unfortunate journey of Pterapogon kauderni: A remarkable apogonid endangered by the international ornamental fish trade, and its case in CITES
Pterapogon kauderni (Koumans 1933) is a popular aquarium fish that is endemic to the Banggai Archipelago in eastern Indonesia. It is generally found in calm zones on the leeward side of largerExpand

The first article, by Ron Lilley, describes the situation on the ground and in the water in the Banggai Archipelago: the species, the fishery, and the communities involved. He also outlines effortsExpand
Site fidelity facilitates pair formation in aggregations of coral reef cardinalfish
TLDR
In these cardinalfish, strong site attachment facilitates long-lasting pair bonds, as well as new pair formation when necessary, suggesting that site rather than mate fidelity is the major driver of the reproductive system. Expand
Group stability and homing behavior but no kin group structures in a coral reef fish
TLDR
It is suggested that benefits from living in a known social environment drive homing behavior in this species and that homingbehavior is not enough for the formation of kin group structures, and that kin recognition may be a prerequisite for the forming of kin groups. Expand

The costs of reproduction to males and females of a paternal mouthbrooding cardinalfish Apogon notatus
TLDR
In the cardinalfish Apogon notatus, starving males mouthbrood the eggs, and females are more active than males in courtship and in attacks against conspecific intruders, but sexual ornaments are developed in males. Expand
Social and reproductive behavior of three mouthbrooding cardinalfishes, Apogon doederleini, A. niger and A. notatus
TLDR
It is suggested that in paternal apogonids the prolonged pair bond and territoriality should have developed only in gregarious species as secondary adaptation for reproductive success: to avoid conspecific interference during spawning. Expand
Mate guarding in an Amazonian cichlid, Pterophyllum scalare
TLDR
Fish of both sexes attacked intruders of the same sex more intensely than they attacked those of the opposite sex, but males were more aggressive than females in this context. Expand
Female mating strategy and male brood cannibalism in a sand-dwelling cardinalfish
  • N. Okuda
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Animal Behaviour
  • 1999
TLDR
Investigating male and female sexual strategies of a cardinalfish, Apogon niger, which breeds in sandy areas at sporadic coral colonies, found that mate search increases mortality and low mate availability may inhibit male A. niger from committing filial cannibalism. Expand
Sex Roles Are Not Always Reversed When the Potential Reproductive Rate Is Higher in Females
  • N. Okuda
  • Biology, Medicine
  • The American Naturalist
  • 1999
TLDR
The facts that the variance in reproductive success was greater in males and the males developed a sexual trait suggest that sexual selection is acting more strongly on males than on females, suggesting that this fish is not sex‐role reversed. Expand

Filial cannibalism in a paternal mouthbrooding fish in relation to mate availability
TLDR
Results indicate that cannibalistic males take advantage of multiple mate availability, by eating the first brood and rearing the second, to shorten inter- spawning intervals by changing mates. Expand

TLDR
Pterapogon kauderni is the first apogonid in which direct development is described, and the embryo and juvenile development is presented. Expand
Male size determines reproductive output in a paternal mouthbrooding fish
TLDR
The study reveals the benefits of mutual mate choice on size in this species: larger females provide larger eggs and larger males can brood heavier clutches, and suggests that females differentially allocate resources into the eggs according to the size of the mate. Expand
Females produce larger eggs for large males in a paternal mouthbrooding fish

  • Proceedings of the Royal Society of London. Series B: Biological Sciences
  • 2001
TLDR
Experiments show that females in this species adjust their offspring weight and, thus, presumably offspring quality according to the size of their mate, and suggest a female preference for larger males. Expand
