1. Data from: A breath of fresh air in the foraging theory: the importance of wind for food size selection in a central place forager
2019. Alma, Andrea Marina, Farji-Brener, Alejandro Gustavo, and Elizalde, Luciana. Empirical data about food size carried by central place foragers does not often fit with the optimum predicted by classical foraging theory. Tradit... The American Naturalist.
2. Data from: A dynamic state model of migratory behavior and physiology to assess the consequences of environmental variation and anthropogenic disturbance on marine vertebrates
2019. Pirotta, Enrico, Mangel, Marc, Costa, Daniel P., Mate, Bruce, Goldbogen, Jeremy A., Palacios, Daniel M., Huckstadt, Luis A., McHuron, Elizabeth A., Schwarz, Lisa, and New, Leslie. Integrating behavior and physiology is critical to formulating new hypotheses on the evolution of animal life-history strategies. Migratory capital... The American Naturalist.
3. Data from: A free-ranging, feral mare (Equus caballus) affords similar maternal care to her genetic and adopted offspring
2019. Nunez, Cassandra Maria Victoria, Adelman, James S., and Rubenstein, Daniel I. Adoption of non-genetic offspring occurs in a variety of species, but is rare in equids. We report a case of adoption by a free-ranging, feral mare... The American Naturalist.
2019. Sasaki, Takao, Penick, Clint A., Shaffer, Zachary, Pratt, Stephen C., Liebig, Jürgen, and Haight, Kevin L. Social dominance hierarchies are widespread, but little is known about the mechanisms that produce non-linear structures. In addition to despotic h... The American Naturalist.
5. Data from: A treefrog with reproductive mode plasticity reveals a changing balance of selection for non-aquatic egg-laying
2019. Touchon, Justin C. Non-aquatic reproduction has evolved repeatedly, but the factors that select for laying eggs on land are not well understood. The treefrog Dendrops... The American Naturalist. Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute.
2019. Sheppard-Brennand, Hannah, Poore, Alistair G. B., and Dworjanyn, Symon A. Selection by consumers has led to the evolution of a vast array of defenses in animals and plants. These defenses include physical structures, beha... The American Naturalist.
7. Data from: Adaptive differences in circadian clock gene expression patterns and photoperiodic diapause induction in Nasonia vitripennis
2019. Dalla Benetta, Elena, Beukeboom, Leo W., and van de Zande, Louis. Day length (photoperiod) and temperature oscillate daily and seasonally and are important cues for season-dependent behaviour. Larval diapause of t... The American Naturalist.
2019. Scharf, Inon, Modlmeier, Andreas P., Beros, Sara, and Foitzik, Susanne. Parasites decrease host fitness and can induce changes in host behavior, morphology, and physiology. When parasites exploit social insects, they in... The American Naturalist.
2019. Cembrowski, Adam R., Frederickson, Megan E., Thomson, James D., and Tan, Marcus G. Ants on flowers can disrupt pollination by consuming rewards or harassing pollinators, but it is difficult to disentangle the effects of these expl... The American Naturalist.
10. Data from: Assessing feeding preferences of a consumer guild: partitioning variation among versus within species
2019. Rhoades, O. Kennedy, Best, Rebecca J., and Stachowicz, John J. Interspecific variation in resource use is critical to understanding species diversity, coexistence, and ecosystem functioning. A growing body of r... The American Naturalist.
