    Oecologia 174:1097-105. 2014
    ..The present findings of inter-individual selection and intra-individual deterioration in cell oxidative status at old age in free-living animals support a role for oxidative stress in the ageing of wild animals. ..

    Pierre Bize
    Department of Ecology and Evolution, University of Lausanne, 1015 Lausanne, Switzerland
    Proc Biol Sci 279:1380-8. 2012
    ..Those findings provide strong evidence that antipredator behaviour of adult Alpine swifts is shaped by genetics and/or pre-hatching maternal effects taking place at conception but not by behavioural copying...

    Pierre Bize
    Department of Ecology and Evolution, University of Lausanne, Biophore, Lausanne, Switzerland
