Published: 1 September 2021
...Natalie E. van Dis; Maurijn van der Zee; Roelof A. Hut; Bregje Wertheim; Marcel E. Visser ABSTRACT Climate change is rapidly altering the environment and many species will need to genetically adapt their seasonal timing to keep up with these changes. Insect development rate is largely influenced...

In humans and zebra finches, discrimination thresholds for colour stimuli depend on background colour, and thus the adaptive state of the visual system. We have tested how well chickens can discriminate shades of orange or green presented...

The subjects were fully adapted by acquiring modified motor patterns to either walk or run on a split-belt treadmill driven in split mode (asymmetry in the velocities of two belts at 1.0 and 2.0 m s −1 ). Subsequently, we tested how the adaptation affected walking and running at three different velocities...
