Divergence in ecological niche offers organisms the opportunity of exploiting different food and habitat resources, scaling down competition and predation both among species, and within different age or size ...

Understanding the way species with similar niches can coexist is a challenge in ecology.The niche partitioning hypothesis has received much support, positing that species can exploit available resources in ...
Manenti, R., Melotto, A., Denoël, M., & Ficetola, G. F. (2016). Amphibians breeding in refuge habitats have larvae with stronger antipredator responses. Animal Behaviour, 118, 115-121.
Antipredator responses are a key determinant of the successful persistence of prey, and behavioural modifications are a frequent antipredator strategy. However, conspecific populations often inhabit ...
Delcourt, J., Denoël, M., Ylieff, M., & Poncin, P. (2013). Video multitracking of fish behaviour: a synthesis and future perspectives. Fish and Fisheries, 14(2), 186-204.
With the development of digital imaging techniques over the last decade, there are now new opportunities to study complex behavioural patterns in fish (e.g. schooling behaviour) and to track a very large ...
Denoël, M., Libon, S., Kestemont, P., Brasseur, C., Focant, J.-F., & De Pauw, E. (2013). Effects of a sublethal pesticide exposure on locomotor behavior: A video-tracking analysis in larval amphibians. Chemosphere, 90(3), 945-951.
Organochlorine pesticides such as endosulfan have been shown to have both lethal and sublethal effects on amphibians. In this context, behavioral endpoints have proved their usefulness in evidencing impacts of ...

Endosulfan is an organochlorine pesticide that was recently labeled as a persistent organic pollutant, but it is still widely employed, particularly in developing countries. The goal of this study is to ...
Manenti, R., Denoël, M., & Ficetola, G. F. (2013). Foraging plasticity favours adaptation to new habitats in fire salamanders. Animal Behaviour, 86(2), 375-382.
Predators often show strong plasticity of optimal foraging strategies. A major difference in foraging strategies occurs between sit-and-wait and active predators. Models predict that the efficiency of these ...

Pesticides and other chemicals often have detrimental effects at environmental concentrations. Many amphibian species are particularly threatened because of their susceptibility but also because wetlands are ...

Despite growing evidence of the detrimental effect of chemical substances on organisms, limited research has focused on changes in behavioral patterns, in part due to the difficulties to obtain detailed ...
