A  Novel  Synthesis  of  Individualisation  across  Behaviour,  Ecology  and  Evolution:  Niche  Choice,  Niche  Conformance,  Niche  Construction

We propose to combine behaviour, ecology and evolution in an etho-eco-evo approach to develop a novel synthesis of individualisation that also takes into account that the environmental conditions change throughout an animal's lifetime.

Individuals differ. This seemingly trivial statement has nevertheless led to paradigm shifts, as three different fields of organismal biology have seen a marked change in key concepts over the last years.
