Change of Aggressive Readiness in Post-Irradiation Generations of the Convict Cichlid Fish, Cichlasoma nigrofasciatum

Furthermore, it is generally accepted that most species-specific behavior patterns are inborn. Accordingly, mutations concerning behavior patterns attain special evolutionary significance because they produce new candidates for evolution.
