... in 46 female white-footed mice ( Peromyscus leucopus ). A total of 117 measures of substitution were taken by quantifying the difference in the slope of the relationship between MR and locomotor activity speed at two different ambient temperatures. Consistency repeatability (±s.e.) of substitution...

Our results show how the sample average can be the best measure of inter-individual variation, whereas the sample maximum is neither repeatable nor a useful...

We studied the consistency of individual heterothermic responses to environmental challenges in a single population of yellow-necked mice ( Apodemus flavicollis ), by verifying the hypothesis that T b variation is a repeatable trait. To induce the heterothermic response, the same...

We first establish that individual variation in exploratory behavior is repeatable and consistent across situations. We then show a relationship between exploratory behavior...

For BMR m , spring and autumn repeatability were within the same range as year-round repeatability (0.26 and 0.18 versus 0.27, respectively; Fig. 4 D; t 443 <1.46...

...Charles-A. Darveau; Fannie Billardon; Kasandra Bélanger The evolution of flight energetics requires that phenotypes be variable, repeatable and heritable. We studied intraspecific variation in flight energetics in order to assess the repeatability of flight metabolic rate and wingbeat frequency...

This indicates that the variation is intrinsic to the individuals, but there was no evidence for trade-offs amongst the components of the response, suggesting...

Previous studies on fish have found SMR to closely correlate with dominance and position in the social hierarchy, and to be highly repeatable over time when fish were provided an ad libitum diet. In this study we tested the temporal repeatability of individual SMR, AMR and AAS...

...,indicating no training or fatigue effects. About 50% of the overall variation in speed at each temperature was due to intraindividual variation. While speed was repeatable, repeatability decreased slightly with increasing separation between trials. Speeds at 20°C and 35°C were positively correlated...

The within-individual BMR variation of up to 26% that we observed in laughing doves reveals that BMR is a highly flexible trait in this species, and reiterates the need to take phenotypic plasticity into account in comparative analyses of avian...

Few studies have tested whether BMR shows stable between-individual variations. Repeatability indicates that the trait might be heritable and therefore a possible...

This suggests that the metabolic cost of egg formation should respond to selection. However, we also show that in males, but not females, repeatability of RMR...
