- ... Phenotypic plasticity allows organisms to change their phenotype in response to shifts in the environment. While a central topic in current discussions of evolutionary potential, a comprehensive understanding of the genetic underpinnings of plasticity is lacking in systems undergoing adaptive diversification. Here, we investigate the genetic basis of phenotypic plasticity in a textbook adaptive ra ...

- ... Understanding the mechanism(s) that favour cooperation among individuals competing for the same resources provides direct insights into the evolution of grouping behaviour. In a hybrid zone between golden‐/yellow‐collared (Manacus vitellinus) and white‐collared (Manacus candei) manakins, males form aggregations composed of white and yellow males solely to attract females (‘mixed leks’).
