Fast–slow life history is correlated with individual differences in movements and prey selection in an aquatic predator in the wild [Journal of Animal Ecology]
Keywords : activity, animal personality, fast–slow continuum, life-history trade-offs, pace-of-life syndrome
1.Fast and slow life histories are proposed to covary with consistent individual differences in behaviour, but little is known whether it holds in the wild, where individuals experience natural fluctuations of the environment.
2.We investigated whether individual differences in behaviour, such as movement traits and prey selection, are linked to variation in life-history traits in Eurasian perch (Perca fluviatilis) in the wild.(...)
