4. Individual variation in genetic, physiology and behaviour

Individual variation in genetic, physiology and behaviour
Chair: Christian Tudorache (University of Leiden)

Individuals from the same species show different proposenstites for social interactions  and exhibit different social behaviours. In this symposium, we explore the mechanisms and consequences of these differences.
