Abstract

A shy-bold continuum, which influences diet, predator risk, and parasite fauna, exists in juvenile pumpkinseed. Individual differences are relatively stable in nature but seem to disappear when the fish are held in social and ecological isolation in the laboratory. Thus, phenotypic stability may not reflect innate tendencies to be shy or bold but rather environmental conditions that maintain differences between phenotypically plastic individuals. -from Authors
