  • Behavioral plasticity and G × E of reproductive tactics in Nicrophorus vespilloides burying beetles 

    Carter, MJ; Head, ML; Moore, AJ; Royle, NJ (Wiley / Society for the Study of Evolution, 2015-03-10)
    Phenotypic plasticity is important in the evolution of traits and facilitates adaptation to rapid environmental changes. However, variation in plasticity at the individual level, and the heritable basis underlying this ...
  • Behavioural phenotype affects social interactions in an animal network. 

    Pike, TW; Samanta, M; Lindström, J; Royle, NJ (Royal Society, 2008-11-07)
    Animal social networks can be extremely complex and are characterized by highly non-random interactions between group members. However, very little is known about the underlying factors affecting interaction preferences, ...
