Ecological, evolutionary, and conservation implications of incubation temperature‐dependent phenotypes in birds
Observations suggest that incubation temperature (and incubation behaviours of parents) is an important but underappreciated parental effect in birds and may represent a selective force instrumental in shaping avian reproductive ecology and life‐history traits. Expand
Test of the Ecological Basis of Cooperative Breeding in Red-Cockaded Woodpeckers
-In many cooperatively breeding birds, the primary reason that helpers remain on the natal territory rather than disperse to breed independently may be to gain an advantage in competing forExpand
An individual-based, spatially-explicit simulation model of the population dynamics of the endangered red-cockaded woodpecker, Picoides borealis
Spatially-explicit population models allow a link between demography and the landscape. We developed a spatially-explicit simulation model for the red-cockaded woodpecker, Picoides borealis, anExpand
Status of the California Condor (Gymnogyps californianus) and Efforts to Achieve Its Recovery
The Auk, Vol. , Number , pages  . ISSN -, electronic ISSN -.  by The American Ornithologists’ Union. All rights reserved. Please direct all requests for permission toExpand
The Determination of Clutch Size in Precocial Birds
This review attempts to organize and summarize clutch size theories as they emerge in modified form from recent research and evaluate their ability to explain observed patterns in clutch size variation. Expand
Patterns of Testosterone and Prolactin Concentrations and Reproductive Behavior of Helpers and Breeders in the Cooperatively Breeding Red-Cockaded Woodpecker (Picoides borealis)
It is concluded that the physiological bases of alloparental behavior have not diverged from those that mediate parental behavior in this species. Expand
The Red-cockaded Woodpecker: Surviving in a Fire-Maintained Ecosystem
The Red-cockaded Woodpecker is particularly fascinating because it is a cooperative breeder that places its nest cavities in live trees, in an ecosystem that burns several times per decade, and this book beautifully illustrates how social behavior and population biology are well described. Expand
Empirical estimation of dispersal resistance surfaces: a case study with red-cockaded woodpeckers
Persistence of wildlife populations depends on the degree to which landscape features facilitate animal movements between isolated habitat patches. Due to limited data availability, the effect ofExpand
Application of Ecological Principles to the Management of Endangered Species: The Case of the Red-Cockaded Woodpecker
Historically, conservation biology may be viewed as a union between parts of the fields of wildlife biology and ecology that reflects the maturation of both. Expand
