Immunocompetence and resource holding potential in the damselfly, Calopteryx virgo L

Jani Koskimäki, Markus J. Rantala, Jouni Taskinen, Katja Tynkkynen and Jukka Suhonen.

in Behavioral Ecology

January 2004; p ublished online January 2004 .

Journal Article. Subjects: Evolutionary Biology; Ecology and Conservation; Zoology and Animal Sciences. 3918 words.

It is generally believed that resource holding potential reliably reflects male quality, but empirical evidence showing this is scarce. Here we show that the outcome of male-male competition...

in Behavioral Ecology

July 2000; p ublished online July 2000 .

Journal Article. Subjects: Evolutionary Biology; Ecology and Conservation; Zoology and Animal Sciences. 6675 words.

We designed a dynamic optimization model to examine anuran-breeding phenologies. We evaluated the fitness consequences for males adopting one of four alternative strategies : calling,...

in Behavioral Ecology

November 2011; p ublished online July 2011 .

Journal Article. Subjects: Evolutionary Biology; Ecology and Conservation; Zoology and Animal Sciences. 5665 words.
