.... Adaptive plasticity Geometric morphometrics Bone microarchitecture Trabecular architecture Plasticity allows an organism to ‘fine-tune’ its form to best fit its behavior and is thought to be important at the macroevolutionary scale ( West-Eberhard, 1989 , 2005 ; Scheiner, 1993 ; Agrawal, 2001...

... that certain egg-brooding behaviors (i.e. postural adjustments) are more energetically costly to females than other behaviors (i.e. tight coiling). In sum, we provide empirical support for the adaptive plasticity of python egg-brooding behavior, which offers insight into the general significance of female-only...
