Read the Virtual Issue on Pace-of-life syndromes

The Pace-Of-Life Syndrome (POLS) hypothesis proposes that a suite of behavioural, physiological and morphological traits are associated with the life-history trade-off between current and future reproduction. Over the last decade, POLS theory has received significant attention due to its integrative analysis of traits of ecological importance and life-history theory. On the occasion of the publication of the POLS topical collection for which we served as guest editors, Theo Bakker and James Traniello have proposed that we search the archives of Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology to compile relevant articles, thus making them easily accessible to interested readers. Here we provide a list of 19 papers ranked chronologically and alphabetically that directly consider or provide important information concerning POLS. In addition to the 15 papers from the topical collection Pace-of-life syndromes: a framework for the adaptive integration of behaviour, physiology and life-history, this virtual issue enables quick access to the POLS literature.
