Dr Gabrielle Davidson
Gabrielle Davidson and members of UCC Ornithology Group have shown links between behaviour and life history traits in wild great tits, as published in Royal Society Open Science. At the individual level, great tits differed in how scared they were of novel objects and predator eyes placed on their nest box, while at the population level, they treated both stimuli as equally scary. Bolder birds that entered the box quickly were in better body condition & tended to have more offspring. Supporting ethical publishing practices, this paper is 100% open access for anyone to read.
