Abstract

Human-induced perturbations such as crude-oil pollution can pose serious threats to aquatic ecosystems. To understand these threats fully it is important to establish both the immediate and evolutionary effects of pollutants on behaviour and cognition. Addressing such questions requires comparative ...

Abstract

Many species in social groups make use of readily available, socially provided information for behaviours including predator avoidance, mate choice and foraging. Not only are actions imitated, but they may also be reapplied in variable future situations, suggesting an explicit knowledge of the...

Abstract

In a previous study we found that female guppies shoaled more than males and that there was greater transmission of the ectoparasite Gyrodactylus turnbulli between females. Here, to test for a possible sex bias in parasite transmission, we conducted a similar experiment on single sex shoals of male ...

Abstract

Understanding how individuals modify their social interactions in response to infectious disease is of central importance for our comprehension of how disease dynamics operate in real-world populations. Whilst a significant amount of theoretical work has modelled disease transmission using network...

Abstract

Shoaling behaviour confers fitness benefits that depend on individual fish making specific choices of shoalmates. Some of these choices have been shown to be influenced by experience, raising questions as to whether all shoaling choices depend on experience. Here we show that juveniles of three...

Abstract

The effects of the social environment during development on life-history decisions and adult behaviour were assessed using male guppies Poecilia reticulata. Males raised with adults developed secondary sexual characteristics later than males raised either singly or with four of their siblings...

Abstract

How and why cooperation evolves, particularly among nonrelatives, remains a major paradox for evolutionary biologists and behavioral ecologists. Although much attention has focused on fitness consequences associated with cooperating, relatively little is known about the second component of...

Abstract

Polyandry (female multiple mating) can confer important benefits to females, but few studies have considered its potential costs. One such cost may arise through differences in the relatedness of offspring born to females with different mating histories; offspring born to monandrous females are...

Abstract

10 schools of 21-54 guppies (Poecilia reticulata) (n = 40 males and 40 females) were captured from the Tacarigua River, Trinidad, during December 1996. Each school was composed of males, females and juveniles. Test fish were placed in tanks with visual and olfactory access to 4 same-sex fish from...

Abstract

The relative contributions of genetic and socio-cultural factors in determining behaviour have proved to be extremely difficult to study experimentally. Experiments were carried out to examined the strength of genetic and cultural (imitative) factors in determining female mate choice in the guppy (...
