-Silver & Keller, 2012 ). Two core processes that musicians employ to successfully synchronize are temporal anticipation and adaptation ( Keller, 2008, 2014 ). Musicians must continuously make predictions about upcoming sounds and movements while also adapting their movements in response to previous timing

investigated whether species specific mating preferences differed between the sexes in three species of blue waxbill (genus Uraeginthus ). We compared male preference for con- specific females versus heterospecific blue waxbill females using two-way choice trials. The results were compared with predictions of

predictions: (1) infected females are in poorer body condition and have lower fecundity than uninfected females; (2) males prefer to coerce uninfected females; (3) infected males coerce less frequently than uninfected males; and (4) infected females are less resistant to male coercion. In contrast to our

I summarise some recently published studies on the evolution of life traits of nematodes. Some predictions were obtained using the framework of epidemiological modelling and were

areas where conspecific social stability is weak. Predictions were that nonter- ritorial individuals, 'floaters', should be attracted to areas of social instability and that they should obtain territories in unstable areas. An experiment with red-winged blackbirds (Agelaius phoeniceus), designed to test

Nicholas of Cusa and Times of Transition

Essays in Honor of Gerald Christianson


Edited by Thomas M. Izbicki, Jason Aleksander and Donald Duclow

Nicholas of Cusa (1401-1464) was active during the Renaissance, developing adventurous ideas even while serving as a churchman. The religious issues with which he engaged – spiritual, apocalyptic and institutional – were to play out in the Reformation. These essays reflect the interests of Cusanus but also those of Gerald Christianson, who has studied church history, the Renaissance and the Reformation. The book places Nicholas into his times but also looks at his later reception. The first part addresses institutional issues, including Schism, conciliarism, indulgences and the possibility of dialogue with Muslims. The second treats theological and philosophical themes, including nominalism, time, faith, religious metaphor, and prediction of the end times.

. These are that patterns of intergroup interaction represent (H2) BGC mediated through males or (H3) male reproductive strategies. Four predictions are generated from these hypotheses and tested with data from two sources: (1) a cross-population Papio baboon literature survey and (2) a population
