It is shown that little is known about Anatidae ecology in spring, although some goose species are exceptions, and another general pattern is that the ecology of Anatidae at staging sites is particularly neglected.
The importance of protected areas as nocturnal feeding grounds for dabbling ducks wintering in western France

Migratory ducks are important vectors for both terrestrial and aquatic plant species, even those lacking the fleshy fruits or hooks typically used to identify seeds dispersed by birds, according to a literature review.
Low survival after release into the wild: assessing “the burden of captivity” on Mallard physiology and behaviour

It is argued that the low survival of released Mallards likely has a physiological rather than a behavioural (foraging) origin, and in any case, extremely few released birds live long enough to potentially enter the breeding population, even without hunting.
Field evidence of dispersal of branchiopods, ostracods and bryozoans by teal (Anas crecca) in the Camargue (southern France)
Evidence is provided that teal may be important vectors of invertebrate dispersal both within the Camargue and along migratory flyways and with a seasonal decline in the availability of propagules on the water surface.
Feeding methods, visual fields and vigilance in dabbling ducks (Anatidae)
Visual fields were determined in two species of dabbling ducks (Anatini) and it is proposed that this interspecific difference in the proportion of time spent in vigilance behaviour may be an adaptive response to differences in the visual field topography of these species, particularly with respect to the presence/absence of a blind area to the rear of the head.
Effects of non-consumptive leisure disturbance to wildlife
Human leisure activities are becoming more and more various and widespread, which may increase their potential consequences for wildlife in terms of disturbance. This paper summarizes existing…
The scientific basis for new and sustainable management of migratory European ducks
Abstract It is an axiom in ecology that knowing the sheer number of individuals in a population is of very little help if the objective is to understand future and past changes in population size.…
