Abstract

Research with a variety of aquatic ectotherms suggests that variation in individual metabolic rate (i.e., metabolic phenotype) can be a factor that influences the behaviour and growth of individuals. Slow growth, growth disparity and growth depensation have been reported as major drawbacks to spiny ...

Abstract

Social behaviour in Caribbean spiny lobsters (Panulirus argus) is mediated by conspecific chemical cues. These lobsters can be attracted to shelters emanating chemical cues from conspecifics but tend to avoid shelters emanating chemical cues from injured conspecifics, dead conspecifics, and...

Abstract

Social behavior confers numerous benefits to animals but also risks, among them an increase in the spread of pathogenic diseases. We examined the trade-off between risk of predation and disease transmission under different scenarios of host spatial structure and disease avoidance behavior using a...

Abstract

Our experiment examined the ability of crayfish (Procambarus clarkii) to discriminate between familiar and unfamiliar conspecifics of equivalent social status, and investigated whether this species displays dear enemy or nasty neighbor effects. Pairs of size and sex matched crayfish fought to...

Abstract

Pathogens can influence the behaviors of their hosts, including avoidance by healthy individuals. However, the spatial structuring consequences of these behaviors are often unknown, especially in the marine environment. The Caribbean spiny lobster Panulirus argus (Latreille, 1804) avoids sheltering ...

Abstract

Alpheus lobidens De Haan, 1849, like many other snapping shrimp, is a socially monogamous species typically found in male-female pairs in burrows under rocks. We evaluated mate guarding (detection of female receptivity) and shared resource defense as factors that could have led to social monogamy...

Abstract

Effects of intra- and interspecific competition on diet, growth, grazing, swimming, resting and social behaviour of two carps calbasu (Labeo calbasu) and mrigal (Cirrhinus cirrhosus) were examined in single and mixed species treatments. Three treatments (tanks with 4 L. calbasu, 4 C. cirrhosus or 2 ...

Abstract

Living in groups with conspecifics can increase an animal's fitness in the wild. A social environment may also be imposed by commercial farming industries. One important measure of competition and group dynamics is the level of aggressive interaction. This can also influence the level of damage or...

Abstract

The number and duration of agonistic encounters between signal crayfish Pacifastacus leniusculus individuals were monitored in two different social environments: a "stable" environment with large size variation and in an "unstable" environment with narrow size variation of conspecifics. The number...

Abstract

Previous work has shown that the reflection from aquarium walls can modify several aspects of crayfish behaviour, but only if the crayfish are socialized. Such socialization is known to generate a dominance hierarchy composed of dominant and subordinate animals. The present study was conducted to...
