New publication in Animal Behaviour – on the interspecific differentiation of personalities among shrews

In the last issue of Animal Behaviour, Sophie von Merten, Rafał Zwolak and Leszek Rychlik (Department of Systematic Zoology) published a paper in which they verified the social niche specialization hypothesis predicting that more social species should have more pronounced personality differences. They tested this prediction using four species of shrews that differ in ecology [...]

Polish Press Agency about the research conducted in our Institute “Kin selection promotes female productivity and cooperation between the sexes”

Aleksandra Łukasiewcz, Agnieszka Szubert-Kruszyńska i Jacek Radwan (Evolutionary Biology Lab) found that evolution in groups of relatives results in higher reproductive output of females which partly results from the mitigation of the sexual conflict. (published in Science Advances). More about this research can be found here (in Polish).

Aggressive signaling in wood warblers: publication in Journal of Avian Biology

A paper by Jakub Szymkowiak and Lechosław Kuczyński (Population Ecology Lab) about signaling function of male song rate during territorial contests in the wood warbler (Phylloscopus sibilatrix) has been published in the current issue of Journal of Avian Biology. Using playback experiments, Authors showed that wood warbler males respond differentially to simulated territorial intrusions depending [...]
