Flow regime affects building behaviour and nest structure in sticklebacks

Rushbrook, Ben J.; Head, Megan; Katsiadaki, Ioanna; Barber, Iain


Animals usually build nests to provide protection, for themselves or their offspring, from adverse environmental conditions. However, different nest structures may be better at providing protection in different environments. The ability to adjust building behaviour and design of nests in response to variation in environmental conditions is therefore likely to be important in determining individual fitness. Here, we look at how the nests of three-spined stickleback (Gasterosteus aculeatus) males...[Show more]
