  • The influence of resource patch condition and size on social
           interactions, reproductive behaviors, and oviposition in a fungivorous
           beetle

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Variation among resource patches can structure spatial patterns of social behavior. Individual preferences and requirements for heterogeneous resources can lead to differences in where behaviors take place and which kinds of individuals interact. In this study we examined whether properties of habitat patches predict presence of and interactions among wild forked fungus beetles (Bolitotherus cornutus). B. cornutus use shelf-like fruiting bodies of wood decaying fungi (brackets) as social arenas, courtship and mating sites, oviposition locations, and food sources. Brackets on a single log vary in size and condition and represent a dynamic resource as individual brackets decay over the years that they persist on a subpopulation. We found that size and condition significantly predicted how a bracket was used by B. cornutus. Both males and females were found more often on larger, living brackets. Larger brackets hosted proportionally more social interactions and mating behaviors relative to the overall visitation by individuals. The relationship between these resource properties and frequencies of behaviors was stronger for reproductive, between-sex social interactions. Live brackets also attracted more oviposition events by females, but bracket size had no effect on this behavior. Our results indicate that the dynamics of growth and aging of a critical resource can impact how social and reproductive behaviors are distributed in time and space, which in turn could affect the social structure of subpopulations. Significance statement Species that depend on critical host resources are often faced with a patchy landscape of resource quality. Those patches represent the infrastructure within which social behaviors take place, and can have formative effects on where, when, and how social interactions occur. We demonstrated that the size and condition of a fungal resource predicted male and female forked fungus beetle presence and behavior. Larger, living brackets hosted more beetles overall, while larger brackets in any condition hosted more social interactions and mating behaviors. Female beetles were more likely to lay eggs on living brackets, regardless of size. This study demonstrates how ecological dynamics of aging resource patches can indirectly structure social landscapes by influencing where and how individuals interact.

  • A dynamic state variable model suggests a stronger effect of age than
           individual energetic state on reproductive allocation in burying beetles

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Evolutionary fitness is determined by how an organism allocates energy, or other limited resources, to reproduction during its lifetime. For iteroparous organisms, two alternative patterns of lifetime reproductive allocation are terminal investment and reproductive restraint. Terminal investment maximizes an individual’s current reproductive output by allocating all available resources to current reproduction at the cost of future reproduction. In contrast, the reproductive restraint strategy allocates the individual’s resources toward future survival and reproductive events. We used dynamic state variable modeling to investigate the conditions under which the burying beetle, Nicrophorus orbicollis, would balance between reproductive restraint and terminal investment over their lifetime. Our model provides a formal extension, specific to burying beetle biology, of the dynamic terminal investment threshold conceptual model. For young females, we show that delayed reproduction and reproductive restraint are the optimal tactic for all individuals except for those in the highest condition. However, as age increases, terminal investment becomes the optimal tactic over an increasingly broader range of individual conditions. Surprisingly, manipulation of a variety of factors, such as survival rate, resource availability, and metabolic costs, causes only minor changes in the general pattern observed. We suggest that in burying beetles, and other similar organisms, age plays a dominant role in determining the pattern of reproductive allocation over a lifetime. Individual energetic condition is important in changing the boundaries between alternative reproductive strategies, but it does not change the overall pattern of dominance of delayed reproduction or reproductive restraint at early ages and dominance of terminal investment with increasing age.

  • How does rapid body color change affect the conspicuity of lizards to
           their predators and conspecifics'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Predator–prey interactions drive the evolution of prey visual camouflage, but prey species also must remain conspicuous to their conspecifics for social signaling purposes. Whether rapid body color change can help to balance conspecific visibility and predator concealment, in the eyes of each group’s respective visual systems, remains poorly understood. We tested this question using water anoles (Anolis aquaticus), a small lizard that uses rapid dark-to-light body color change to visually camouflage itself from its avian predators across diverse microhabitats. We used digital image analysis and visual modeling to assess the effectiveness of color-matching camouflage in dark- and light-phase A. aquaticus, as perceived by anoles and avian predators. Our findings reveal that A. aquaticus body coloration was perceived similarly by both groups. However, sex-specific differences in overall conspicuousness emerged, with males more consistently color matching their microhabitats compared to females. Females were less likely to color match their backgrounds in their lighter phase, suggesting a sex difference in preferred conspicuity in more exposed habitats. We highlight the context-dependence of color change, with sex-specific differences and microhabitat potentially affecting its function. Significance statement Predator and prey visual systems influence prey species’ visual camouflage evolution, but whether rapid body color changes allow animals to dynamically balance conspecific visibility with predator concealment is not well known. We used visual modeling techniques to examine if water anoles (Anolis aquaticus), small lizards that employ rapid body color changes to evade their avian predators, appear differently to their predators and conspecifics depending on color phase. Our findings reveal that A. aquaticus body coloration is perceived similarly by both groups. However, we observed sex-specific differences: males and larger individuals displayed more consistent color matching across different microhabitats, whereas females showed reduced matching in their lighter phase. Our study underscores the context-dependence of the function of color change in relation to factors including sex and microhabitat.

  • Heat-altered scent marks of males of a fossorial reptile still allow
           recognition by females but lose information on male quality

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The efficacy of sexual signals in communication is often maximized under specific environmental conditions. Anthropic alterations of these conditions might, thus, negatively affect communication during reproductive behavior. In fossorial animals, inhabiting visually restricted environments, chemical senses are very important. We examined whether climatic episodes of heat-waves with unusual high temperatures may affect the information provided to females by the sexual chemical signals of males of a fossorial reptile, the amphisbaenian Blanus cinereus. The results showed that experimentally heat-altered substrate scent marks of males can still provide information to females about the presence of a male. Females spent more time on males’ scent marks, irrespective of the temperature treatment, than on control clean ones. However, heat-altered scent marks did not seem to convey information about the health state (immune response) of the producer. Females spent more time on unaltered scent marks of healthier males (probably indicating mating preferences for these males), while female preferences for some heat-altered scent marks were not related to size or immune response of the same individual males. Chemical analyses indicated that the overall chemical profile of precloacal secretions (used for scent marking) did not change with increased temperatures. However, the relationship between proportions of some compounds in secretions and males’ immune response found in unaltered secretions was lost in heat-altered ones. We conclude that unusual increased environmental temperatures may decrease the efficacy of underground sexual chemical signals in this amphisbaenian (i.e., a loss of information on male quality), and consequently, may negatively affect sexual selection and reproduction.

  • Individual flexibility in group foraging behaviour of reef manta rays
           (Mobula alfredi)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Flexibility in animal foraging strategies can increase overall feeding efficiency for individuals. For example, group foraging can increase the efficiency of resource exploitation; conversely solo foraging can reduce intraspecific competition, particularly at low resource densities. The cost–benefit trade-off of such flexibility is likely to differ within and among individuals. Reef manta rays (Mobula alfredi) are large filter-feeding elasmobranchs that often aggregate to feed on ephemeral upwellings of zooplankton. Over three years in the Maldives, we free-dived to film 3106 foraging events involving 343 individually identifiable M. alfredi. Individuals fed either solo or in groups with a clear leader plus between one and eight followers. M. alfredi were significantly more likely to forage in groups than solo at high just prior to high tide and when aggregations were larger. Within aggregations, individuals foraged in larger groups when more food was available, and when the overall aggregations were relatively large suggesting that foraging in large groups was more beneficial when food is abundant, and the costs of intraspecific competition were outweighed by the efficiency resulting from group foraging strategies. Females, the larger sex, were more likely to lead foraging groups than males. The high within-individual variance (over 70%), suggested individuals were unpredictable across all foraging behaviours, thus individual M. alfredi cannot be classified into foraging types or specialists. Instead, each individual was capable of considerable behavioural flexibility, as predicted for a species reliant on spatially and temporally ephemeral resources. Significance statement Reef manta rays (Mobula alfredi), listed as “Vulnerable” on the IUCN Red List, are at risk from targeted and by-catch fisheries due to their slow life history and aggregative behaviour. M. alfredi feed together in aggregations on short-lived glut of microscopic zooplankton. Over three years in the Maldives, we filmed 3106 foraging events involving 343 individually identifiable M. alfredi. Manta rays were more likely to forage in groups than solo just prior to high tide and when aggregations were larger, attracted by the influx of zooplankton. Foraging groups included more individuals when plankton was more abundant. However, individuals flipped between solo and group foraging and did not specialise. Foraging groups were most often led by females, the larger sex. Individuals were very flexible in how they foraged, which makes sense for a species that relies on a food source that varies enormously in when, where and for how long it is available. Understanding manta ray foraging behaviour will help conservation management efforts and predict their responses to climate change.

  • The effect of formation swimming on tailbeat and breathing frequencies in
           killer whales

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In many aquatic taxa, formation traveling can reduce the energetic expenditure of locomotion by exploiting the vorticity trails shed by neighbors or through drafting. Cetaceans, especially odontocetes, often swim in groups; nevertheless, the possibility that whales gain energetic benefits from swimming in formation remains poorly studied, apart from mother-calf pairs. Between June and September in 2019 and 2021, we recorded aerial videos of Southern Resident killer whales (Orcinus orca) in the Salish Sea (USA) travelling in groups. We estimated whale tailbeat and breathing frequencies as proxies of the relative energetic costs of swimming, and tested the effect of swimming speed, relative positioning (e.g., leaders, whales in the middle of groups, or followers), sex and estimated size on these observed proxies. Our results reveal a complex relationship between physical characteristics, relative positioning, and energetic proxies. Intervals between respiration lasted longer in large-sized trailing individuals, but the overall breathing frequency was similar for all whales regardless of their position. The tailbeat frequency was mainly associated to whale sex, size, and swimming speed; in addition, tailbeat frequency showed a decreasing trend as the number of individuals in the formation increased. We found moderate evidence that position-based energetic effects may be present in the formation swimming of killer whales, and it is likely that additional factors such as social ties and hierarchies, play a key role in determining individual positioning in travelling groups. Significance Swimming in formation has been extensively studied in fish and other aquatic animals and has been documented to provide energetic advantages. Our understanding of the potential energetic benefits of wild cetacean formation swimming has been constrained by the difficulties of studying the movement of whale groups from traditional observation platforms. In recent years, non-invasive observations of cetaceans using unoccupied aerial systems have significantly improved the observation of these species in the wild, providing an exciting opportunity to better understand their behaviors and habits. Our results show a tendency for formation swimming to affect two energetic proxies (tailbeat frequency and the duration of underwater intervals between surfacing events). The results of this study set the stage for further research to identify the multiple determinants affecting killer whale formation swimming which go beyond purely energetic advantages, e.g. social relationships.

  • Are brood sex ratios adaptive' – The effect of experimentally altered
           brood sex ratios on parental feeding behaviour

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Correlations between brood sex ratios (BSRs) and parental or environmental quality have been found in many species. This phenomenon is called sex ratio adjustment, and is expected to evolve if certain factors affect the fitness return from the offspring in a sex-dependent way. However, it is seldom studied whether biased sex ratios are indeed adaptive. We manipulated BSRs in a cross-fostering experiment, and investigated parental costs in terms of feeding rate and survival in the collared flycatcher (Ficedula albicollis). In our population, male nestlings can grow faster under good conditions, but are more sensitive to adverse conditions. Assuming that the sensitivity of the males results from their larger energy requirement, we predicted increased costs in broods with male-biased experimental BSR. Assuming that BSR adjustment is adaptive and related to parental care giving capacity, we expected higher feeding and survival rate by parents that originally had more sons, and predicted that low quality parents are less able to adjust their feeding rates to the needs of their foster broods or pay higher survival cost. However, we found that the manipulated BSR and its interaction with original BSR affected neither the feeding rate nor the survival of the parents. Only male feeding rate was correlated with original BSR, however, contrary to our prediction: males with female-biased original BSR fed their foster chicks more frequently. Our results, with those of a previous report about the effects of the experiment on nestlings, do not support that the observed BSRs are adaptive in our population. Significance statement Many hypotheses propose that higher vertebrates adaptively adjust the primary sex ratio of their offspring to individual or environmental quality. While the potential adaptive value of the observed patterns is regularly discussed, studies that specifically test the adaptivity of sex ratio adjustment are very scarce and correlative. Using a special cross-fostering experiment, we investigated whether original brood sex ratios are related to the rearing capacity of the parents, and experimental sex ratios are related to the rearing costs in terms of feeding effort or survival. We found no effect of experimentally altered brood sex ratios on either parental feeding effort or survival. Furthermore, contrary to the adaptive scenario, males that had female-biased broods originally had higher feeding rates. So far, we have found no evidence that the sex ratio adjustment is adaptive in the collared flycatcher.

  • Hidden in plain sight: camouflage and hiding behaviour of wild precocial
           chicks in an open landscape

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Camouflage represents an important component of self-protection when animals cannot easily evade predators and is often altered by behavioural responses to a predation threat. The cryptic plumage of many precocial chicks inspired early theoretical work on camouflage mechanisms, but so far, limited efforts have gone towards empirically testing the crypsis of chick plumage properties in their natural environment. We studied background matching and hiding behaviour in precocial snowy plovers Charadrius nivosus in Bahia de Ceuta, Northwest Mexico. This ground-nesting wader breeds in sparsely vegetated open habitats such as salt flats and sandy beaches. The open habitats provide a challenge for young chicks to evade predator detection. Examining background matching of wild chicks for luminance, pattern and colouration at their hiding spots, we found that chicks matched the luminance of their chosen spot better than at unchosen nearby spots. Pattern and colouration matching were age-related, with the plumage of older chicks matching their hiding spots better than those of recently hatched chicks. This suggests that with increasing mobility, chicks may be better able to find hiding places that optimise camouflage. Finally, we found that chicks were more likely to hide in soil cracks than expected by chance, suggesting that chicks chose these soil features in a barren landscape as preferred hideouts. We conclude that the cryptic plumage is an understudied but essential part of the anti-predator repertoire of precocial chicks. The plumage most likely works hand-in-hand with the anti-predator behaviours of chicks and their parents to increase survival chances of precocial young. Significance statement Many chicks rely on effective camouflage to evade predators and survive until fledging. We studied how plumage characteristics and behavioural choices enable snowy plover chicks to hide effectively from approaching predators in an open landscape. These chicks leave their nest scrapes shortly after hatching, relying on their cryptic plumage for several weeks to evade predator detection. We found that chicks chose hiding spots where their plumage had a higher match in luminance and, for older chicks, a higher match in pattern and colouration than at adjacent spots. When available, chicks chose to hide in small cracks that appeared in the soil from the evaporation of moisture. This study represents the first quantitative characterisation of cryptic chick plumage features in a natural population. Our results demonstrate that plumage and behavioural responses jointly contribute to the effective camouflage of small chicks.

  • Tree isolation enhances seed dispersal behavior by scatter-hoarding
           rodents

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Human activities cause changes in the structure of landscapes that may impact negatively on wildlife at different levels. Agriculture and livestock, for example, have frequently led to landscapes of forest fragments and isolated trees within grass/crops matrices. These changes influence the distribution and behavior of animals, and the key ecological processes that depend on them. In this study, we analyzed how tree isolation influences the patterns of acorn dispersal by scatter-hoarding rodents in Holm oak Quercus ilex fragmented woodlands of Central Spain. Our results show that an increase in the degree of tree isolation promotes the concentration of rodents under oak canopies looking for cover and food during the seeding season. This concentration increases dramatically the levels of competition among rodents for space and acorns beneath oak canopies, which resulted in an increase in acorn caching to reduce seed pilferage by conspecifics, thus favoring acorn dispersal from the mother tree. These shifts in rodent spatial distribution and behavior would favor tree recruitment through increased rates of seed dispersal, which may counterbalance to some extent the potential negative effects of forest fragmentation given the overall loss of seed-producing trees.

  • Morphological and life-history plastic responses to predators and
           competitors in two brown frogs,Rana dalmatina and R. Latastei

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Predation and competition are two major factors that drive natural selection. When they vary unpredictably, selection has promoted the evolution of plastic responses in behavioral, morphological and life-history traits. These responses are not independent of each other and often represent a trade-off between conflicting interests. We conducted a common-garden experiment to study the effects of predation and competition on the morphology and life history of R. dalmatina and R. latastei tadpoles. The experiment used a randomized-block design, where tadpoles were raised either with or without siblings and either with or without predators. Regardless of the treatments, R. dalmatina grew faster, developed proportionally larger tails, proportionally smaller bodies, and completed metamorphosis earlier than R. latastei. Both species developed relatively larger bodies with competitors, and relatively larger tails with predators. While the relative increase in body size with competitors was similar in the two species, the increase in tail size with predators was greater in R. dalmatina, suggesting that this species invested more in defense than R latastei. Competitors delayed metamorphosis in both species and in R. latastei they negatively affected froglet body size and shape. Conversely, predators delayed the metamorphosis only in R. dalmatina. This delay was the long-term cost paid by R. dalmatina for the short-term benefits of developing more effective behavioral and morphological defensive traits.

  • Birds do not use social learning of landmarks to locate favorable nest
           sites

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Experiments since the classic studies of Niko Tinbergen have provided evidence that animals use visual landmarks to navigate. We tested whether birds use visual landmarks to relocate their nest sites by presenting two species of cavity nesting birds with a dyad of nest boxes with different white markings around the entrance, a circle or a triangle. When the two boxes were erected in close proximity on the same tree, pied flycatchers Ficedula hypoleuca and blue tits Cyanistes caeruleus confused the entrance of their nest both when the boxes had different external markings and when they were unmarked. Most females added nest material to both boxes of a dyad and one third of the flycatchers laid eggs in both boxes although a female can only incubate the eggs in one nest at a time. Thus, the birds did not use external markings around cavity entrances for orientation. We also tried to replicate a previous study purporting to show that migratory birds use social learning of the external appearance of nests from other species. However, pied flycatchers did not choose boxes with the same painted markings as those applied to nests of resident great tits Parus major which were judged to be high quality “demonstrators” from their large clutch sizes. We argue that conclusions from previous studies on social learning based on external markings as landmarks on nest cavities in birds need to be reconsidered.

  • Behavioral correlates of migration in bats – do migration strategies
           predict responses to a novel environment'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Migration is a life-history trait that shapes individual-by-environment interactions, affecting fitness. Currently, many species are changing their migration strategies, stressing the need to identify and better understand the behavioral correlates of migration. As a partial migrant, the noctule bat, Nyctalus noctula, allows for rare intra-specific investigations of the potential behavioral causes (or consequences) of variation in migration. Here, we combined in-situ behavioral assays with stable isotope analyses to investigate whether spatial and acoustic responses to a roost-like novel environment correlate with migration strategy (local or distant). Given a migrant’s more frequent exposure to novel environments, we predicted migrants would enter a novel environment more quickly and show stronger spatial and acoustic exploration activity. However, individuals of local and distant origin did not differ in acoustic exploration (call activity per unit space), nor, contrasting to several bird studies, in spatial activity (number of chambers visited). Surprisingly, local individuals were more likely than migrants to enter the novel environment. Our findings suggest that small-scale exploration does not vary with migration, potentially because of similar selection pressures across migration strategies on small-scale exploration (e.g., exploration of roosts) as opposed to large-scale. Yet, our findings on the likelihood of entering a novel environment suggest that locals may be more risk-taking. Repeated measures would be necessary to determine if personality differences are underlying these responses. Our unique approach, combining behavioral assays with isotopic geolocation, gave us novel insight into an elusive taxon, highlighting the importance of studying behavioral correlates of migration across various taxa.

  • Chemical cues in the mating behavior of a highly polygynous bird

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Visual and auditory signals are well-established components of avian courtship, but the role of chemical signaling remains poorly understood, particularly in mating systems with elaborate courtship displays. To test how chemical cues influence mating behavior we conducted two experiments in the lance-tailed manakin (Chiroxiphia lanceolata). First, in a field experiment, we tested the response of free-living males and females to manipulation of chemical cues at male display perches by cleaning the perches with ethanol or a dry cloth (control) and quantified a potential chemical signaling behavior (bill-wiping) in response to experimental manipulation. During bouts of dance perch maintenance and displays with a female present (i.e., activity relevant to female mate choice) males increased bill-wiping behavior during initial ethanol treatment periods. We also detected carryover effects of the ethanol treatment; in later treatment periods males bill-wiped more when the prior treatment was ethanol. The likelihood of a female either revisiting a display area or copulating with a male was unrelated to experimental treatment. Next, in captive trials, we assessed female preference for olfactory cues from males that differed in their genetic diversity, a trait previously identified as relevant to female mate choice. In contrast to similar trials in other bird species, females showed no clear preference. Together, these results provide some evidence for chemical signaling by males at display perches, but it remains unclear what information chemical cues convey.

  • Movement ecology during non-breeding season in a long-distance migratory
           shorebird: are space use and movement patterns sex-biased'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In many gregarious species, sex-specific differences can lead to significant variation in movement patterns and, consequently, to social and spatial segregation by sex within the population. Specifically, in several long-distance migratory shorebird species, reverse sexual dimorphism has been proposed as a driver of spatial segregation during the non-breeding season. Thus, sex-specific costs associated with space use during these stationary periods could differentially condition subsequent movement patterns between females and males in these species. Using satellite tracking technology, we analyzed the space use and movement patterns of a population of Hudsonian godwits (Limosa haemastica), a gregarious long-distance migratory shorebird, during the non-breeding season in Chiloé, Chile. We predicted that larger females would show more restricted movements and higher local site fidelity, while smaller males would be less competitive and more exploratory. Most individuals exhibited restricted space use (i.e., a home range), while a smaller fraction showed exploratory movements leading to a nomadic movement pattern. Most of these nomadic individuals subsequently oversummered in Argentina rather than migrating back to breeding areas. Contrary to our main prediction, none of the observed movement patterns were sex-biased. Recent evidence suggests that female and male godwits access prey of different sizes within the same foraging sites on Chiloé. Thus, in accordance with our results, and supported by recent additional findings, resource-partitioning within the same foraging patches could reduce interference competition between the sexes by offsetting the competitive advantage associated with the reversed sexual dimorphism of females over males. Finally, we propose these sex differences in foraging strategies could be advantageous for gregarious migratory shorebird populations that show strong connectivity and high site fidelity during and between non-breeding seasons.

  • Untangling the contribution of active and passive group augmentation
           benefits to the multilevel selection of altruism using a video game

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The group augmentation hypothesis states that individuals gain benefits by increasing group size and is rarely studied because it often overlaps with other evolutionary mechanisms like reciprocity. When rescuing a fellow prey from death, the mere presence of that member in the group can yield different benefits that can be passive like risk dilution or active like delayed reciprocity. We were able to separate the effects of passive and active group augmentation benefits by experimentally manipulating the behaviour of prey (altruist vs. non-altruist) in a video game where the costs and benefits of altruism were easily measured. The game pits four players-prey that must acquire resources to survive, while avoiding getting captured by a fifth player-predator. We instructed half of the prey players to avoid rescuing other prey, and the other half to rescue when possible. Our data showed that increasing the frequency of altruistic prey in a group increased survival of all group members. Maintaining group size yielded passive benefits like improving resource acquisition and facilitating future rescues. These passive benefits had a higher impact on survival than the active benefits (e.g., being rescued in return through reciprocity). Thus, we were able to support the importance of passive benefits from anti-predator altruistic behaviour using a biologically relevant online video game.

  • Temporal trade-off between territorial and thermoregulatory behaviors of a
           generalist lizard in a dry forest

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract When animals are exposed to higher-than-optimal temperatures, they are expected to thermoregulate by decreasing their activity and seeking cooler areas. However, individuals of certain species continue performing reproductive behaviors instead of thermoregulatory behaviors during challenging conditions. This trade-off has been demonstrated in aquatic animals, but not in terrestrial ectotherms. This research gap is important given the relevance of survival-reproduction trade-offs in evolutionary ecology and the pace of current habitat warming. We explored this potential trade-off in territorial males of the lizard Sceloporus ochoterenae, which mate during the hot-dry season in seasonally dry tropical forest. We first assessed the existence of a temporal trade-off between performing push-ups (territorial behavioral display) versus sheltering in the shade (thermoregulatory behavior), then used confirmatory path analysis to explore how it was affected by tree cover, microclimate temperature, and the presence of a conspecific intruder. We found that territories with less tree cover had higher microclimate temperatures, where focal males spent more time performing push-ups at the expense of sheltering in the shade. Focal males also spent more time performing push-ups the longer an intruder was present, who was also affected by the environmental variables. Territorial males spent more time in sunny spots when performing push-ups despite the potential loss of moisture and energy reserves, perhaps because the display is more effective when performed in the open. The potential effects of continued habitat warming on this trade-off could intensify it or driving lizards to change their daily activity rhythms.

  • Intrapopulation variation in boldness differs while average boldness is
           similar across populations of a widespread turtle

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Variation in personality among conspecific animals can be found both among and within populations. Spatially varying ecological factors can lead to differences in average behaviors among populations, but can also influence the amount of variation that occurs among individuals within populations. Few studies have evaluated how the amount of variation among individuals differs among populations, and studies of interpopulation variation in personality in general often use only a low number of study populations. We tested for variation in the mean and variance in boldness across ten widely dispersed populations of Eastern Box Turtles (Terrapene carolina carolina), a declining species with high repeatability for boldness. Using standardized assays conducted in the field, we found that mean boldness did not vary significantly across populations. At the individual level, temperature, sex, and potentially the amount of human-developed land near turtles influenced mean boldness. In contrast, after correcting for covariates that influence individual boldness levels, we found that populations differed significantly in the amount of variation in boldness among individuals. These findings add to our understanding of spatial variation in personality in general and suggest future directions to evaluate the importance of this diversity within T. c. carolina and similar model systems.

  • Individual behavioral variability across time and contexts in Dendrobates
           tinctorius poison frogs

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Consistent individual differences in behavior (“animal personality”) have consequences for individual fitness, evolutionary trajectories, and species’ persistence. Such differences have been documented across a wide range of animals, though amphibians are generally underrepresented in this research area. The aim of our study was to examine consistent individual differences in Dyeing poison frogs, Dendrobates tinctorius. We evaluated repeatability in activity, exploration, and boldness to assess consistency of behaviors across different temporal, experimental, and environmental contexts. We found repeatability in activity and exploration across time and contexts. In contrast, we observed context-specific behavior for our metrics of boldness, with consistent individual differences only for some measures. Further, while activity and exploration displayed consistent correlations across contexts, relationships between activity and boldness were context dependent. Our findings document the presence of consistent individual differences in behavior in D. tinctorius poison frogs, and also reveal context-dependent behavioral differences, highlighting the complex relationship between consistent individual differences and context-specific responses in animal behavior.

  • Rapid facial mimicry as a regulator of play in a despotic macaque species

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: During risky interactions like social play, motor resonance phenomena such as facial mimicry can be highly adaptive. Here, we studied Rapid Facial Mimicry (RFM, the automatic mimicking of a playmate’s facial expression, play faces) during play fighting between young rhesus macaques (Macaca mulatta) living in a large zoo-housed group. For the first time and in contrast to previous data on highly despotic-intolerant macaques, we found RFM to be present at high frequency in young rhesus macaques, especially when the trigger was dominant over the responder and when both players were subadults. The hierarchical modulation of RFM may be associated with the increased uncertainty and riskiness of play involving a higher-ranking playmate. This highlights the importance of mimicry in improving communication and coordination during such interactions. Interestingly, RFM prolonged playful sessions, possibly indicating a more effective fine-tuning of motor patterns. Moreover, the occurrence of RFM had an effect on shortening the latency to restart playing after a break, possibly acting as an engine to potentially maintain playmates’ arousal. When investigating if bystanders could replicate play faces emitted by the playing subjects, we failed to find RFM, thus highlighting that being directly involved in the interaction might be crucial for RFM activation in monkeys. Even though further comparative studies should investigate the role of RFM across tolerant and despotic-intolerant species, our findings offer valuable insights into the communicative and adaptive value of motor resonance phenomena in regulating social play in despotic societies. Significance statement In risky interactions involving competition and vigorous physical contact, such as play fighting, replicating partners’ facial expressions can serve as a strategy to convey positive mood and intentions. Here we investigated the presence and possible roles of Rapid Facial Mimicry (RFM) in rhesus macaques (Macaca mulatta). For the first time, our study demonstrates that communicative strategies, including Rapid Facial Mimicry (RFM), can be both present and frequent in despotic-intolerant macaque species. We demonstrate that the role of mimicry not only prolongs playful interactions but can also be linked to the reinforcement and/or transmission of playful arousal. Our study shows how the adaptive value of motor resonance phenomena may have driven their evolution to cope with challenges during social interactions also for despotic-intolerant species.

  • Evidence of sociality and group foraging in Antarctic minke whales
           (Balaenoptera bonaerensis)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Top krill predators such as the Antarctic minke whale (AMW) serve a vital role within the fragile Antarctic sea-ice ecosystem. They are an abundant krill specialist, but their ecological role in the Antarctic remains poorly understood due to their cryptic behavior and remote habitat. It is therefore crucial to develop a baseline understanding of their basic social and foraging ecology. This study uses animal-borne camera tags to quantitatively explore these critical ecological aspects. Twenty-eight tags were deployed on AMW between 2018 and 2019 in Andvord and Paradise Bays around the Western Antarctic Peninsula. Tag data were analyzed with respect to diving, foraging, and social behavior. Results suggest the presence of loose fission-fusion sociality, with individuals forming short-term associations in 60.6% of cases including both foraging and non-foraging contexts. Socializing was significantly more common for larger individuals and resulted in a significant decrease in foraging rates for both shallow (< 30 m) and deep (> 30 m) dives. There were 12 instances of simultaneously tagged individuals that associated with one another in pairs or trios, displaying synchronized spatial movement and diving behavior. These data illustrated the use of group foraging strategies, with high incidence of synchronized foraging dives (67.5% of associated dives) and lunges (64% of associated lunges). Our results provide clear baseline information on AMW sociality and group foraging, which will help direct future studies for more targeted work. This study will improve our ability to understand the relationship between Antarctic species and their environment as climate change continues to alter the ecosystem landscape.
