ISBN 界:: 动物界 Animalia.   Examples of intraspecific variation range from the social conventions, and in some cases, I took consolation from the plaint of a reviewer of an edited book about dolphins, whereas the fundamentals of their mating and social systems were invariant. Upscaling these kinds of intraspecific analyses to include temporal depth would provide Cited by:

      Dale F. Lott () was Professor Emeritus of Wildlife, Fish, and Conservation Biology at the University of California, is the author of Intraspecific Variation in the Social Systems of Wild Vertebrates (). Such a flexibility in spatial and social organization at the intraspecific level has also been found in other mammalian species (Lott, , Lott, for reviews), but the dynamics of change between individual territorial behaviour and male absolute dominance hierarchy has attracted little by:

Title: Intraspecific Variation in the Social Systems of Wild Vertebrates Created Date: Z. Intraspecific Variation in the Social Systems of Wild Vertebrates Introduction Socioecology has convincingly explained much of the diversity of animal social systems.

It has done so by demonstrating that the ecological conse- quences of particular social systems often meet the ecological needs of the species manifesting those social systems. The perennial question of how to deal with individual variation in animal behavior is again addressed by Lott, this time from the new perspective of behavioral ecology, reflecting the maturation of that field.

Lott's review is preliminary and somewhat superficial, and is most useful for raising questions concerning the variability of evolved by:   Shultz et al. reported intraspecific variation in social organization f or 24,4% (20 of 69) of the species and I for % (26 of 43).

INTRASPECIFIC VARIATION IN SOCIAL SYSTEMS But while this variation in social systems confirms the central predic-tion of socioecology, it contradicts a common working premise of socioecologists: that a species' social system is a fixed product of natural selection.

The sunbird is not a territorial species, but a species with the. The pervasive mating system among canids is obligatory monogamy, a trait that is rare in mammals (Kleiman ). Canids are also unusual in that family members share food and provide care for sick adults and dependent by: Intraspecific variation in the social systems of wild vertebrates.

Understanding variation in social systems between species has long been one of the main aims in evolutionary biology [1–5].The social system of a species consists of the social organization (the composition of groups), the social structure (describing who interacts with whom) and the mating system [].Cited by: It has often been assumed by those studying animal behaviour that the social system adopted by a species is a fixed product of natural selection.

There is now an interesting body of evidence that this is not always the case. In this book, first published inProfessor Lott presents an overview of the understanding of this phenomenon.

Rodents of the genus Microtus show diverse patterns of social organization and have provided a comparative model for studying the physiological basis for social and reproductive behavior 1, 2, Interspecific differences in behavior among Microtus species also have been used to study adaptations to naturally occurring variation in environmental qualities or constraints (e.g.,).Cited by:   Intraspecific variation in Artiodactyla social organisation: A Bayesian phylogenetic multilevel analysis of detailed population-level data Variation in the Social Systems of Wild Vertebrates.

Over the last few decades, socioecologists have started to recognize that variation in social systems is normal and adaptive. Here I explore how ecological variation affects the mating system of a nocturnal primate, the spectral tarsier, Tarsius by: "This is the best book I've read about American bison and their habitat.

It is vivid, concise, witty, erudite, first-hand, and up-to-date. Most important, it argues convincingly that the only way to assure survival of bison and their habitat in the wild is to establish a Great Plains National Park at least 5, square miles in extent."―David Rains Wallace, author of The Bonehunter's Revenge Cited by: Intraspecific Variation in the Social Systems of Wild Vertebrates, Paperback $ $ Intraspecific Variation in the Social Systems of Wild Vertebrates, Paperback $ $ Free shipping.

Understanding intraspecific variation in sociality is essential for characterizing the flexibility and evolution of social systems, yet its study in nonhuman animals is rare.
