Recent Physical Encounters Affect Chemically Mediated Retreat-Site Selection in a Gecko
Chemoreception is well documented in a range of animals but the effects of recent behavioural interactions on an animal's response to subsequent chemical information are poorly understood. Using a series of laboratory experiments with a rock-dwelling gecko (Oedura lesueurii), we examined whether latest social experience affects how animals used chemoreception to mediate microhabitat selection. Males of this species defend retreat-sites and the outcomes of physical duels are maintained during...[Show more]
