Behavioural Responses to a Changing World

This chapter discusses the potential interplay between behavioural phenotypes and population processes by illustrating how human-induced environmental changes can promote these feedbacks. It presents a rationale for why one would expect a feedback between behaviour and population dynamics, and suggests hypotheses as to what behaviours are more likely to affect population growth. It briefly reviews research that explores the classic links between population-level processes and behaviour, and how population dynamics can affect individual behaviour. It highlights empirical studies that support the recent suggestion of a reverse link between population and behaviour, and provides examples of study systems where researchers have documented the complete feedback loop. It also emphasizes instances where humans have affected the interaction between these processes.

Keywords:   behavioural phenotypes, population dynamics, human-induced environmental changes, population growth, individual behaviour
