(Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2016)
    For over 50 years, the great tit (Parus major) has been a model species for research in evolutionary, ecological and behavioural research; in particular, learning and cognition have been intensively studied. Here, to provide ...
  • Le Rouzic, Arnaud; Hansen, Thomas F; Gosden, Thomas P.; Svensson, Erik I. (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2015)
    A major challenge in evolutionary biology is understanding how stochastic and deterministic factors interact and influence macroevolutionary dynamics in natural populations. One classical approach is to record frequency ...
  • Helmersen, Sondre Torp (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2013)
    According to the ICJ, ‘generic’ terms in long-term treaties were presumably intended to be interpreted evolutively. This ‘general rule’ on evolutive interpretation appears simple, but leaves unanswered questions. Moreover, ...
