This field study addressed a number of natural history parameters of Irrawaddy dolphins (Orcaella brevirostris) in the Mekong River of Laos that were not well-documented, including diving behaviour, foraging ecology, habitat use, social behaviour, group size, and diurnal movements. Irrawaddy...
Behaviour of Helianthus annuus L.: an ethogram for sunflower, and the effect of potential competitors on soil nutrient patch useDownload
Individual organisms mediate their relationship with their environment through behaviour, which can have consequences at higher levels of biological organization such as populations and communities. Plants express diverse behaviours in response to their environments, but many aspects of behaviour...
Animals of many species demonstrate movement behaviour in which decisions are based on a variety of information. Effects of resources have been studied widely, often under the assumption that the environment is constant over the course of the study. Much less understood is the role of dynamic...
Sponges perceive and respond to a range of stimuli. How they do this is still difficult to pin down despite now having transcriptomes and genomes of an array of species. Here we evaluate the current understanding of sponge behavior and present new observations on sponge activity in situ. We also...
Animal behaviour varies across hierarchical levels made up of behaviours, personality traits, and behavioural types/syndromes. Stress coping style and anxiety are examples of behavioural types, or covariance of personality traits within individuals, and can be influenced by prior stress exposure....
