The structure and function of nests of Long‐Tailed Tits Aegithalos caudatus
1. The aim of this study was to investigate the structure and thermoregulatory function of nests of the Long-Tailed Tit, Aegithalos caudatus. 2. The feather lining of Long-Tailed Tit nests representsExpand

Turtle mating patterns buffer against disruptive effects of climate change
For organisms with temperature-dependent sex determination (TSD), skewed offspring sex ratios are common. However, climate warming poses the unique threat of producing extreme sex ratio biases thatExpand

Nest Factors Predisposing Loggerhead Sea Turtle (Caretta caretta) Clutches to Infestation by Dipteran Larvae on Northern Cyprus
Abstract This paper reports the physical and biological nest parameters of loggerhead turtle (Caretta caretta) nests on northern Cyprus that predispose individual nests to infestation. All data wereExpand

Dipteran infestation of loggerhead (Caretta caretta) and green (Chelonia mydas) sea turtle nests in northern Cyprus
This paper describes dipteran infestation of loggerhead (Caretta caretta) and green (Chelonia mydas) sea turtle nests in northern Cyprus in 1996 and 1997. Insect larvae were collected from infestedExpand

Learned kin recognition cues in a social bird
In many cooperatively breeding birds, kin selection has an important role in the evolution and maintenance of social behaviour, and ‘helpers’ can maximize indirect fitness gains by preferentiallyExpand

Effects of urbanisation on disease prevalence and age structure in blackbird Turdus merula populations
Despite increasing interest in urban ecology most attention has focussed on describing changes in assemblage composition and structure along urbanisation gradients, whilst relatively little researchExpand

Colonisation of urban environments is associated with reduced migratory behaviour, facilitating divergence from ancestral populations
How individuals colonising novel environments overcome the diverse suite of new selection pressures is a fundamental question in ecology and evolution. Urban environments differ markedly from theExpand

Reconstruction of paternal genotypes over multiple breeding seasons reveals male green turtles do not breed annually
For species of conservation concern, knowledge of key life‐history and demographic components, such as the number and sex ratio of breeding adults, is essential for accurate assessments of populationExpand

Independent colonization of multiple urban centres by a formerly forest specialist bird species
Urban areas are expanding rapidly, but a few native species have successfully colonized them. The processes underlying such colonization events are poorly understood. Using the blackbird TurdusExpand

Low Variation in the Polymorphic Clock Gene Poly-Q Region Despite Population Genetic Structure across Barn Swallow (Hirundo rustica) Populations
Recent studies of several species have reported a latitudinal cline in the circadian clock gene, Clock, which influences rhythms in both physiology and behavior. Latitudinal variation in this geneExpand
