(p.106) Chapter 8 Reproductive behaviour
Behavioural Responses to a Changing World

Anders Pape Møller

Oxford University Press

This chapter provides an overview of the consequences of human-induced changes to the natural environment towards animal reproductive behaviour. It examines three traditions of research that are relevant for understanding the direction and magnitude of changes in reproductive behaviour caused by human-induced environmental change: domestication, urbanization, and global change biology. It analyses each approach and enumerates several commonalities for reproductive behaviour, including adaption to human proximity, phenotypic or evolutionary rapid change, and qualitative discontinuous change of the selective environment. It provides an overview of these three avenues of research and their relation to reproductive behaviour by providing examples of research done to birds and describes the advantages and limitations of these approaches.

Keywords:   animal reproductive behaviour, human-induced environmental change, domestication, urbanization, global change biology
