Fluctuations in population composition dampen the impact of phenotypic plasticity on trait dynamics in superb fairy-wrens

van de Pol, Martijn; Osmond, Helen; Cockburn, Andrew

Description

In structured populations, phenotypic change can result from changes throughout an individual's lifetime (phenotypic plasticity, age-related changes), selection and changes in population composition (environment- or density-driven fluctuations in age-structure). The contribution of population dynamics to phenotypic change has often been ignored. However, for understanding trait dynamics, it is important to identify both the individual- and population-level mechanisms responsible for trait...[Show more]
