Costs/behavior/behavioral ecology/personality/behavioral syndromes/Gosling: It is possible that the cost-benefit trade-offs vary from year to year or from niche to niche such that different suites (e.g., high aggression vs. low aggression) are adaptive at different times or locales. In a series of long-term studies of personality in a natural population of a passerine bird species (Parus major) one research group has generated compelling evidence for the idea that different personalities are adaptive under different conditions (Dingemanse, Both, Drent and Tinbergen 2004(1); Drent, van Oers and van Noordwijk 2003(2); Groothuis and Carere 2005(3)). >Personality/psychological theories, >Niches/evolutionary psychology.
