  • Simulating shifts in taxonomic and functional β-diversity of ray-finned fishes : probing the Mariana disaster 

    Trindade-Santos, Isaac; Eduardo, Anderson Aires; Moyes, Faye; Martinez, Pablo Ariel; Magurran, Anne E.; Gouveia, Sidney F. (2018-10-17) - Journal article
    Environmental catastrophes may precipitate local species extinctions, hence altering community composition (i.e., β-diversity) at the regional scale. Assessments of the impacts of such disturbance may be hindered by the ...

(2018-10-10) - Journal article
    Non-human primate neuroimaging is a rapidly growing area of research that promises to transform and scale translational and cross-species comparative neuroscience. Unfortunately, the technological and methodological advances ...
  • Mate choice intensifies motor signalling in Drosophila 

    Debelle, Allan; Courtiol, Alexandre; Ritchie, Michael G.; Snook, Rhonda R. (2017-11) - Journal article
    Mate choice has the potential to act on the evolution of motor performance via its direct influence on motor sexual signals. However, studies demonstrating this are rare. Here, we performed an in-depth analysis of Drosophila ...

    Cermeño, Pedro; Rodríguez-Ramos, Tamara; Dornelas, Maria; Figueiras, FG; Marañón, E; Teixeira, Isabel G.; Vallina, Sergio M. (2013-08-15) - Journal article
  • Riverside wren pairs jointly defend their territories against simulated intruders 

    Quirós-Guerrero, Esmeralda; João Janeiro, Maria; Lopez-Morales, Marvin; Cresswell, Will; Templeton, Christopher N. (2017-12) - Journal article
    Duets are a jointly produced signal where two or more individuals coordinate their vocalizations by overlapping or alternating their songs. Duets are used in a wide array of contexts within partnerships, ranging from ...
