Preferably oneliners were selected that included an indication of the strength and importance of that trait. Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology 45B: 49–63. For example, the brown bear (Ursus arctos) produced most oneliners in the Wild context and the chinchilla (Chinchilla lanigera) most in the Captive context. As our hypothetical bird should have done, therefore, the juncos took account of the variability in reward as appropriate to their food requirement at the time.

At least as importantly, it also emphasised the necessity for modelling evolutionary outcomes on genetic fitness rather than individual reproductive success. Prairie voles are a useful animal model for investigating interactions between social and environmental stressors, because their social bonds are similar to those of humans.
