Bryophytes are some of the most sensitive biological indicators of environmental change. Springs have a significant presence of bryophytes and so are ideal habitats for studying their relationship with the environment. [...]

Environmental variability has long been postulated as a major selective force in the evolution of large brains. However, assembling evidence for this hypothesis has proved difficult. Here, by combining brain size information for over 1,200 bird species with remote-sensing analyses a to estimate temporal variation in ecosystem productivity, we show that larger brains (relative to body size) are more likely to occur in species exposed to larger environmental variation throughout their geographic range.

27 p, 1.5 MB Relative brain size and its relation with the associative pallium in birds / Sayol i Altarriba, Ferran (Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals) ; Lefebvre, Louis (Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals) ; Sol, Daniel (Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals)
Despite growing interest in the evolution of enlarged brains, the biological significance of brain size variation remains controversial. Much of the controversy is over the extent to which brain structures have evolved independently of each other (mosaic evolution) or in a coordinated way (concerted evolution). [...]

38 p, 1.3 MB Brain size and evolutionary diversification in birds / Sayol i Altarriba, Ferran ; Sol, Daniel, dir. (Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals)
The role of behavior in evolution remains controversial, despite that some ideas are over 100 years old. Changes in behavior are generally believed to enhance evolution by exposing individuals to new selective pressures and by facilitating range expansions. [...]
