  3. Playfulness and creativity.

    Current Biology 25(1):R12 (2015) PMID 25562292

    Playful play is undoubtedly fun. Even so, many people think, incorrectly, that as they get older, they are no longer capable of such frivolous activity. They should heed George Bernard Shaw's advice: "We don't stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing." The motivation...

  8. The biology of developmental plasticity and the Predictive Adaptive Response hypothesis.

    Journal of Physiology 592(Pt 11):2357 (2014) PMID 24882817 PMCID PMC4048093

    Many forms of developmental plasticity have been observed and these are usually beneficial to the organism. The Predictive Adaptive Response (PAR) hypothesis refers to a form of developmental plasticity in which cues received in early life influence the development of a phenotype that is normall...

  11. Evolution, epigenetics and cooperation.

    Proceedings of the Indian Academy of Sciences -... 39(2):191 (2014) PMID 24736153

    Explanations for biological evolution in terms of changes in gene frequencies refer to outcomes rather than process. Integrating epigenetic studies with older evolutionary theories has drawn attention to the ways in which evolution occurs. Adaptation at the level of the gene is givingway to adap...

  14. Tinbergen's four questions: an appreciation and an update.

    Trends in Ecology & Evolution 28(12):712 (2013) PMID 24144467

    This year is the 50th anniversary of Tinbergen's (1963) article 'On aims and methods of ethology', where he first outlined the four 'major problems of biology'. The classification of the four problems, or questions, is one of Tinbergen's most enduring legacies, and it remains as valuable today a...

  19. Animal welfare and conservation, the debate we must have: A response to Draper and Bekoff (2012)

    Biological Conservation 158:424 (2013)

    Highlights ► High standards of individual animal welfare are central to conservation science. ► As Draper and Bekoff note, considering individual animals is essential. ► Bateson’s cube explicitly acknowledges this and promotes animal welfare.
