  • 1 August 2011
Parents affect offspring fitness by propagule size and quality, selection of oviposition site, quality of incubation, feeding of dependent young, and their defence against predators and parasites.Expand

Are blue eggs a sexually selected signal of female collared flycatchers? A cross-fostering experiment
Impressive variation in egg colouration among birds has puzzled evolutionary biologists for a long time. The most frequently studied selective forces moulding egg colouration—predation and broodExpand

Evolutionary signals of selection on cognition from the great tit genome and methylome
For over 50 years, the great tit (Parus major) has been a model species for research in evolutionary, ecological and behavioural research; in particular, learning and cognition have been intensivelyExpand

Maternal effects and offspring performance: in search of the best method
Traditionally, maternal effects have been treated as a source of troublesome environmental variance that confounds our ability to accurately estimate the genetic basis of the traits of interest.Expand

Egg size and offspring performance in the collared flycatcher (Ficedula albicollis): a within-clutch approach
Adaptive within-clutch allocation of resources by laying females is an important focus of evolutionary studies. However, the critical assumption of these studies, namely that within-clutch egg-sizeExpand

1. Despite the central importance for life-history theory, egg-size effects on offspring fitness are still considered ambiguous. Most previous studies were only observational and consequently mightExpand

Paternity covaries with laying and hatching order in the collared flycatcher Ficedula albicollis
Females in most bird species engage in extra-pair copulations. Although this behaviour is widespread, benefits for females of doing so are less understood. The most widely accepted hypothesis is thatExpand

Cross‐fostering eggs reveals that female collared flycatchers adjust clutch sex ratios according to parental ability to invest in offspring
Across animal taxa, reproductive success is generally more variable and more strongly dependent upon body condition for males than for females; in such cases, parents able to produce offspring inExpand

LSA-Based Multi-Document Summarization
Text Summarization is a research area that attracts many research groups around the world. Its aim is to take a source text and present the most important content in a condensed form in a mannerExpand

Linking events throughout the annual cycle in a migratory bird—non-breeding period buffers accumulation of carry-over effects
Annual cycles of animals consist of distinct life history phases linked in a unified sequence, and processes taking place in one season can influence an individual’s performance in subsequent seasonsExpand
