... feeding preference was only marginally significant. However, with experience, moths were able to learn nectar composition and flower color associations and to forage preferentially (against innate color preference) for nectar with a realistic amino acid composition. Foraging moths responding to learned...

...Nicholas B. Pollock; Stephanie Feigin; Marko Drazenovic; Henry B. John-Alder ABSTRACT Sexual differences in adult body size [sexual size dimorphism (SSD)] and color (sexual dichromatism) are widespread, and both male- and female-biased dimorphisms are observed even among closely related species...

... as a cost of or constraint on reproduction in the brown booby ( Sula leucogaster ), a long-lived seabird with prolonged biparental care. We found that during courtship, levels of lipid peroxidation (LP) of males and females were positively associated with gular skin color, a trait presumably used in mate...

...`clients'. Evolutionary shifts in habitat use, behavior and lateral body stripe colors differentiate cleaners from ancestral sponge-dwelling lineages. High-contrast stripe colors associated with cleaning behavior on coral reefs may have evolved as a signal of cleaning status. We asked whether cleaner...

...Lisa Horth SUMMARY About 1% of male mosquitofish ( Gambusia holbrooki ) express melanic(mottled-black) body coloration, which differs dramatically from the wild-type, silvery-gray coloration. Here, I report on the genetic inheritance pattern of melanic coloration, which indicates Y-linkage...

...S. P. Yanoviak; R. Dudley SUMMARY Animals often depend on properties of reflected light (e.g. color,brightness) to locate resources. We compared reflectance properties of tree trunks with surrounding vegetation, and examined how differences in reflectance profiles of surrogate tree trunks (red...

... and white distal data points is due to the impurity of colors in these regions. Each feather barb was mounted in a materials testing device such that the initial length between the screw-and-nut grips was 9-15 mm. The specimen was extended at 8 mm min -1 until breakage. Force was measured using...
