Animal personality and reproduction
Edited by Wiebke Schuett
The interest in animal personality variation (consistent behavioural differences among individuals) is rapidly increasing, yet, its evolutionary and ecological consequences are not well understood. This collection of publications gives novel insights into the link between animal personality and reproduction in the broadest sense. Topics covered range from the role of personality during intra-sexual competition, mate choice and parental care to reproductive consequences of personality variation and to more general mechanisms underlying care coordination and cooperation.
