Brain size evolution: How fish pay for being smart


Isler, Karin (2013). Brain size evolution: How fish pay for being smart. Current Biology, 23(2):R63-R65.

Abstract

An artificial selection experiment demonstrates that large-brained guppies learn better, but produce less offspring and have smaller guts. A close link between brain size and fertility suggests that energetic trade-offs play an important role in brain size evolution.
