We studied birds in groups housed in large outdoor aviaries that allowed birds to regulate access to social stimulation. In two aviaries, we housed juvenile males and females either with or(More)

Our large (8-ha) southern California restoration experiment tested effects of tidal creek networks and pools on trophic structure of(More)
