M. (1974) On two types of deviation from the matching law: bias and under-matching. Coral Reefs is a non-biology major course designed to provide a general overview of tropical and sub-tropical coral reefs to students with an interest in these fascinating ecosystems, but who lack a strong theoretical background in the biological sciences. If fathers bias the intra-uterine environment in favour of sons, they stand to reduce the fertility of their daughters, and vice versa for mothers.

Animals are frequently provided with several modes of reacting to a given stimulus which may be called into play one after the other. Sean Senechal, at the AnimalSign Center has been using an approach similar to this FCT with domesticated animals, such as dogs (since 2004) and horses (since 2000) with encouraging results and benefits to the animals and people. This suggests a degree of coincidence between intra- and intersexual competition, but that the latter may require more time for income, status and other differentials to develop sufficiently to be reliable in mate choice.

This is your life we're talking about, after all, and there's nothing worse than spending years and thousands of dollars on a higher education, only to discover you've made a big mistake. Currently John is studying cognitive traits and personality axes of variation, using a combination of experimental and field-based approaches. In dense and fluid penguin colonies, for example, individuals show enormous variation in vocalisation, which proves vital when birds are trying to locate their mates or chicks in the clamorous throng (Aubin & Jouventin 2002).

For the journal, see Animal Behaviour (journal).

Discusses how baboons and impala interact.

Large animals can seriously injure handlers and/or themselves if they become excited or agitated. Arrows indicate direction of water movement. Flash responses are often embellished with bright markings which, like the coloured hindwings of some grasshoppers and mantids, are exposed during flight but disappear once the animal resumes its resting position (e.g.
