Identifying rice fields at risk from damage by the greater flamingo
TLDR
It is suggested that it is possible to identify accurately fields at risk from damage in order to concentrate scaring methods, and planting hedges should be promoted, and wood cutting discouraged, in high-risk areas. Expand
LOCAL RECRUITMENT IN THE GREATER FLAMINGO: A NEW APPROACH USING CAPTURE-MARK-RECAPTURE DATA
TLDR
A recently developed approach, based on capture-mark-recapture, in which analysis of local recruitment of Greater Flamingos in the Camargue is similar to a time-reversed analysis of survival, finding additive effects of age and year to affect recruitment. Expand
Diffusion in Fractcal Landscapes: Simulations and Experimental Studies of Tenebrionid Beetle Movements
TLDR
It is shown how diffusion alternates between ordinary and anomalous diffusion depending on movement rules, landscape pattern, and the spatial and temporal scales of observation. Expand
Detection of Critical Densities Associated with Pinon‐Juniper Woodland Ecotones
The interfaces between pifion-juniper canopies and grasslands in the south- western USA present an opportunity to use the modern theory of spatial phase transitions as a formal characterization ofExpand
Interactions between the fractal geometry of landscapes and allometric herbivory
TLDR
Interactions between scale-dependent resource density and allometric herbivory were investigated and spatial patterns of resources may regulate resource uptake and depletion rates within the landscape, with potential implications for demographics, intra-specific competition, and community assembly. Expand
Interannual Variation in Greater Flamingo Breeding Success in Relation to Water Levels
TLDR
Estimation of reproductive performance in colonial waterbirds could be improved by considering average body condition of chicks at fledging as well, as well as the number of breeding pairs and physical condition of fledg- lings. Expand
Annual Variation in Survival and Breeding Probability in Greater Flamingos
TLDR
The probability of resighting increased with age in both males and females, reflecting the progressive access to regular reproductive status in this population, and males had a higher probability of being resighted than females, probably due to their higher rates of mate switching and renesting following breeding failure. Expand
Surround Repulsion of Spinal Sensory Axons in Higher Vertebrate Embryos
TLDR
Results show that gradients of diffusible repulsion molecules flanking axon pathways can generate linear patterns of axon growth, and suggest that such "surround repulsion" may function generally, in concert with contact-dependent guidance mechanisms, to guide axons in the developing nervous system. Expand
SEX‐ AND AGE‐RELATED VARIATION IN SURVIVAL AND COST OF FIRST REPRODUCTION IN GREATER FLAMINGOS
TLDR
Survition of experienced females was higher than that of males, with the difference being more pronounced in early age classes, and age had a significant positive effect on survival probability of birds. Expand
Phenotypic correlates of post-fledging dispersal in a population of greater flamingos: the importance of body condition
TLDR
Results support the hypothesis that condition affects dispersal patterns from the natal area and suggest that body condition and local environmental conditions during the early growth play a role in dispersal. Expand
