    ..More definitively, even when the jays were prevented from inspecting rewards during delays, their performance improved when subjected to longer delays. The findings are thus consistent with the adaptive-choice model...

    Proc Biol Sci 273:2809-13. 2006
    ..This population's demise may signal a climate-driven range contraction through local extinctions along the trailing edge...

    Anim Cogn 11:707-13. 2008
    ..It should be straightforward to test these competing hypotheses. The current results can be viewed as a new example of how simple mechanisms sometimes produce economically puzzling yet ecologically rational decision making...

    Katherine R Greenwald
    Department of Evolution, Ecology, and Organismal Biology, Ohio State University, Columbus, OH 43210 1293, USA
    Conserv Biol 23:1232-41. 2009
    ..Used judiciously, simple GIS models with key land-cover variables can be used to estimate population isolation if field sampling and genetic analysis are not possible...
  6. ncbi request reprint State-dependent choice and ecological rationality
    Andrew L Nevai
    Mathematical Biosciences Institute, Ohio State University, Columbus, OH 43210, USA
    J Theor Biol 247:471-9. 2007
    ..This formerly puzzling finding makes sense if the jays' effective hoard was relatively small, due to theft and decomposition. We discuss adaptive state-dependent choice as a general explanation for apparently irrational behavior...

    J Theor Biol 250:449-60. 2008
    ..Our findings show that incomplete DoL can emerge even when generalists often err and must pay extra costs for their multitasking capacity...
