Abstract

Learning is ubiquitous among animals and plays an important role in all manner of ecological processes including competition, predation, mutualism, species coexistence, and population regulation. Learning has important consequences for evolutionary change, including biological diversification. Learning is also important to consider when assessing the effect of human activity on animal populations. Here we provide an overview of learning from an ecological and evolutionary perspective.
