Profile IntroductionEvolutionary and ecological impacts of behavior, including effects of predation risk on mating and sexual selection, behavioral traits associated with biological invasions, behavioral responses to human-induced rapid environmental change, and effects of behavioral syndromes (animal personalities) on social dynamics, sexual selection and parasitism.
