    Department of Animal and Plant Sciences, University of Sheffield, Sheffield, United Kingdom
    PLoS ONE 2:e624. 2007

    Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci 364:27-36. 2009
    ..Our aim is to review theoretical approaches that investigate the evolution of defence and to explain how the type of defence and the costs associated with its acquisition are important in determining the level of defence that evolves...
