Personality interactions between animals may dictate outcomes in the wild
Date:9/4/2013

about four recent studies demonstrating the importance of studying the personalities of multiple species concurrently," said Pruitt. "If we had restricted our focus to only a single species, say the spider, we wouldn't have detected an effect of the spiders' personality at all. This is because, on average, both active and inactive spiders caught a similar number of prey. Only when we consider the personalities of the prey do we see that the performance of active versus inactive spiders depends on the activity levels of their prey."

Pruitt said that, taken together, the Pitt data emphasizes that there is valueor perhaps even a needin broadening the focus of future personality studies beyond just single-species examinations.

"Studies about multiple, interacting species hold promise toward increasing our understanding of the ecological causes and consequences of behavioral variation, which we observe in virtually every animal population," Pruitt said.
