Description

Understanding how individuals respond to change within their own natural environment is crucial to our gaining insight into how individuals, populations and species respond to environmental change. Despite intensive research, many questions into the adaptiveness of behaviour have not been answered in sufficient detail, due to a lack of long-term studies (that measure behavioural, genetic and environmental traits), imprecise fitness measures, and the need for complex models to separate environmental from genetic effects.
