Heterogeneity and personality

Miguel’s new paper is out today in Proceedings of the Royal Society B. The paper investigates individual differences in reproductive behaviour in 16 Trinidadian guppy populations and relates it to the observed variation in predator biomass each population experienced. Results show that high heterogeneity in predator biomass is linked to individual behavioural diversification and suggest that this is an informative predictor of adaptive responses to changes in biotic conditions.
