Reduced parental care, compensatory behaviour and reproductive costs of thick-billed murres equipped with data loggers
Theoretical models predict that in species with obligate biparental care, individuals will partially compensate for decreased parental effort by their partners as a stable evolutionary strategy. FullExpand

A tangerine-scented social odour in a monogamous seabird
Social odours, conspecific chemical signals, have been demonstrated in every class of vertebrate except birds. The apparent absence is surprising, as every bird examined has a functional olfactoryExpand

A critique of avian CHD-based molecular sexing protocols illustrated by a Z-chromosome polymorphism detected in auklets
The sexes of non-ratite birds can be determined routinely by PCR amplification of the CHD-Z and CHD-W genes. CHD -based molecular sexing of four species of auklets revealed the presence of aExpand

BIRD ODORS AND OTHER CHEMICAL SUBSTANCES: A DEFENSE MECHANISM OR OVERLOOKED MODE OF INTRASPECIFIC COMMUNICATION?
Bi ds e i an chemical compounds, though ornithologists rarely consider them. Avian odors, for example, are readily detectable to humans in at least 17 avian orders and 80 genera (Table 1; data fromExpand

In vivo recording of adult zebrafish electrocardiogram and assessment of drug-induced QT prolongation.
In the last decade the zebrafish has become a major model organism for the study of development and organogenesis. To maximize the experimental utility of this organism, it will be important toExpand

A practical introduction to stable-isotope analysis for seabird biologists: Approaches, cautions and caveats
Stable isotopes of carbon and nitrogen can provide valuable insight into seabird diet, but when interpreting results, seabird biologists need to recognize the many assumptions and caveats inherent inExpand

Experimental evidence for mutual inter- and intrasexual selection favouring a crested auklet ornament
During the breeding season, female and male crested auklets Aethia cristatella (Alcidae), display similar conspicuous crest ornaments composed of elongated forward-curving feathers on theirExpand

Sex-specific differences in diving behaviour of two sympatric Alcini species: thick-billed murres and razorbills
At the Gannet Islands, Labrador, sympatric thick-billed murres (Uria lomvia (L., 1758)) and razorbills (Alca torda L., 1758) are slightly sexually dimorphic and have similar intersexual differencesExpand
