Teresa Dzieweczynski, Ph.D., associate professor in the Department of Psychology, published an article in the most recent issue of the journal Behavioral Ecology. The article, "Male behavioral type affects female preference in Siamese fighting fish," has three different student co-authors, Lindsay Forrette (Animal Behavior '13), Krystal Mannion (Animal Behavior and Marine Science '15), and Alyssa Russell (Animal Behavior '12).
This study is one of the first to explicitly link differences in male personality to differences in female choice in fishes. The article is also a component of Dzieweczynski's research program on examining the causes, mechanisms, and consequences of individual variation in fish behavior.
