By comparing behavioural variation in response to live or video presentations of conspecific females, we analysed how variation in the motivation to produce courtship song covaries with variation in performance aspects of courtship song in male zebra finches ( Taeniopygia guttata...

... or the complex signal as a whole. Here, we examined laterality in lizard responses to determine whether receivers separate the processing of motion and colour signal components in different brain hemispheres. In Psammophilus dorsalis , males display colours that dynamically change during courtship and aggressive...

...Leslie A. Dunham; Walter Wilczynski Arginine vasotocin (AVT) is a potent regulator of social behavior in many species, but little is known about its role in reptilian behavior. Here we examine the effect of exogenous AVT on aggressive responding and courtship behavior in the green anole lizard...

However, the relative costs of producing these different behaviors are largely unknown. In the marine ostracod Photeros...
