      Automated species recognition of antbirds in a Mexican rainforest using hidden Markov models 

      Trifa, V. M.; Kirschel, A. N. G.; Taylor, C. E.; Vallejo, E. E. (2008)
      Behavioral and ecological studies would benefit from the ability to automatically identify species from acoustic recordings. The work presented in this article explores the ability of hidden Markov models to distinguish ...

      The bacterial metabolite 2-aminoacetophenone promotes association of pathogenic bacteria with flies 

      Kapsetaki, Stefania Elisavet; Tzelepis, Ilias; Avgousti, Kalodoti; Livadaras, Ioannis; Garantonakis, Nikos G.; Varikou, Kyriaki N.; Apidianakis, Yiorgos (2014)
      Bacteria contaminate insects and secrete metabolites that may affect insect behaviour and potentially fitness through unknown mechanisms. Here we show that the 'grape-like' odorant 2-aminoacetophenone (2AA), secreted by ...

      The evolutionary consequences of interspecific aggression 

      Grether, G. F.; Anderson, Christopher N.; Drury, J. P.; Kirschel, A. N. G.; Losin, N.; Okamoto, K.; Peiman, K. S. (2013)
      Competition has always been a cornerstone of evolutionary biology, and aggression is the predominant form of direct competition in animals, but the evolutionary effects of aggression between species are curiously understudied. ...
