Evolution of foraging behaviour in response to chronic malnutrition in Drosophila melanogaster

Proceedings. Biological Sciences

Jun 15, 2012

R K VijendravarmaT J Kawecki

Abstract

Chronic exposure to food of low quality may exert conflicting selection pressures on foraging behaviour. On the one hand, more active search behaviour may allow the animal to find patches with slightly better, or more, food; on the other hand, such active foraging is energetically costl...read more

Toxocariasis

Toxocariasis, caused by infection with larvae of Toxocara canis, and to a lesser extent by Toxocara cati and other ascaridoid species, manifests in humans in a range of clinical syndromes. Here is the latest research.

Parasite evolution

Parasite evolution involves the heritable genetic changes that a parasite accumulates during its life time. Discover the latest research on parasite evolution here.

Microbial ecology, genetics and evolution

Microbes are microscopic organisms which may exist in a unicellular or colony form. Here is the latest research on their genetic makeup, their relationship with one another and the environment, and their evolution.

Gene-Environment Interaction & Behaviour

Gene-environment interaction is when two different genotypes respond to environmental variation in different ways.Genes and environment interact to form an individual's personality. Abnormal or extreme behaviour could thus be explained by hereditary factors in combination with poor environmental conditions.
