Climate change threatens coral reefs, with recent heatwaves causing widespread coral bleaching and mortality. Soft corals (order Alcyonacea) provide reef structure and habitat, but most reef research has instead focused on reef-building hard corals (order Scleractinia). Reviewing the primary literature documenting the effects of recent (2014–2020)...
Sexual dimorphism can lead to differences in foraging style among conspecifics due to morphological differences. Within bats, maneuverability and speed of flight are influenced by wing shape and size, which may differ between sexes. Female bats gain about 30% of their body mass during pregnancy, affecting their agility and flight efficiency. To fil...
Intraspecific variation in diet and/or foraging behaviour is one way in which species are able to occupy wide geographical areas with variable environments. Myotis lucifugus (Le Conte, 1831), a primarily aerial insectivorous bat, consumes spiders in low temperatures at the start and end of summer in Northwest Territories, but in Alaska, it consumes...
