  1. ncbi request reprint Optimizing time and resource allocation trade-offs for investment into morphological and behavioral defense
    Ulrich K Steiner
    Institute of Zoology, University of Zurich, CH 8057 Zurich, Switzerland
    Am Nat 169:118-29. 2007
    ..In the presence of time constraints, the model shows peak investment into morphological and behavioral defense at intermediate resource levels...
  2. ncbi request reprint Investment in defense and cost of predator-induced defense along a resource gradient
    Ulrich K Steiner
    Institute of Zoology, University of Zurich, 8057 Zurich, Switzerland
    Oecologia 152:201-10. 2007
    ..Furthermore, my results indicate that genetic linkages and mechanistic integration of multiple defensive traits and their associated costs may constrain time and resource allocation in ways that are not addressed in existing models...
  3. doi request reprint The fitness costs of developmental canalization and plasticity
    J Van Buskirk
    Institute of Zoology, University of Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland
    J Evol Biol 22:852-60. 2009
    ..These findings suggest that costs of plasticity are often weak, and may influence phenotypic evolution only under stressful conditions...
  4. ncbi request reprint Environmental stress and the costs of whole-organism phenotypic plasticity in tadpoles
    U K Steiner
    Zoological Institute, University of Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland
    J Evol Biol 21:97-103. 2008
    ..Neither the magnitude of the cost nor the variation around the estimate (detectability) was sensitive to environmental stress...
  5. pmc Predator-induced changes in metabolism cannot explain the growth/predation risk tradeoff
    Ulrich K Steiner
    Zoological Institute, University of Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland
    PLoS ONE 4:e6160. 2009
    ..This suggests that the tradeoff between avoiding predators and growing rapidly is not caused by changes in metabolic rate, and must be sought in other behavioural or physiological processes...
  6. doi request reprint Dynamic heterogeneity and life history variability in the kittiwake
    Ulrich K Steiner
    Department of Biology, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305, USA
    J Anim Ecol 79:436-44. 2010
    ..It provides an alternative to claims that fixed individual differences are a major determinant of heterogeneity in life histories...
  7. doi request reprint Dynamic heterogeneity in life histories
    Shripad Tuljapurkar
    Department of Biology, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305, USA
    Ecol Lett 12:93-106. 2009
    ..We discuss fitness for dynamic life histories, and the implications of dynamic heterogeneity for the evolution of life histories and senescence...
  8. pmc Dynamic heterogeneity and life histories
    Shripad Tuljapurkar
    Department of Biology, Stanford University, Stanford, California 94305, USA
    Ann N Y Acad Sci 1204:65-72. 2010
    ..We conclude by discussing our ongoing and planned work on animals and humans. We also discuss the connections between our work and recent work on human mortality, disability and health, and life course theory...
  9. doi request reprint Phenotypic plasticity, costs of phenotypes, and costs of plasticity: toward an integrative view
    Hilary S Callahan
    Department of Biological Sciences, Barnard College, Columbia University, 3009 Broadway, New York, NY 10027, USA
    Ann N Y Acad Sci 1133:44-66. 2008
    ..Messages emerging from microbial work can guide future efforts to understand the evolution of plastic traits in diverse organisms...
