Positive interspecific associations consistent with social information use shape juvenile fish assemblages

Hui, Francis; Haak, Christopher R.; Cowles, Geoffrey W.; Danylchuk, Andy J.


Social information obtained from heterospecifics can enhance individual fitness by reducing environmental uncertainty, making it an important driver of mixed-species grouping behavior. Heterospecific groups are well documented among fishes, yet are notably more prevalent among juveniles than more advanced life stages, implying that the adaptive value of joining other species is greater during this developmental period. We propose this phenomenon can be explained by the heightened ecological...[Show more]
