How to measure animal personality and why does it matter? Integrating the psychological and biological approaches to animal personality


Koski, S E (2011). How to measure animal personality and why does it matter? Integrating the psychological and biological approaches to animal personality. In: Inoue-Murayama, M; Kawamura, S; Weiss, A. From Genes to Animal Behavior. Tokyo: Springer, 115-136.

Abstract

During the last few years individual differences in nonhuman animal (hereafter “animal”) behavior have been a subject of rapidly growing research interest (reviews in Réale et al. 2007; Sih and Bell 2008). This has met the much older research tradition of personality psychology, which includes human and, more recently, animal personality (Gosling 2001). Individual differences in behavior and their underlying psychology are now increasingly relevant research fields in several species of animals.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
