The physiology/life-history nexus
The rate of reproduction, age at maturity and longevity vary widely among species. Most of this life-history variation falls on a slow-fast continuum, with low reproductive rate, slow development andExpand

Phytohemagglutinin-induced skin swelling in birds : histological support for a classic immunoecological technique
Summary 1Measurements of phytohemagglutinin (PHA)-induced tissue swelling are arguably the most popular surrogates for immunocompetence in wild birds. It is largely unresolved, however, whether theExpand

Biotelemetry: a mechanistic approach to ecology.
Remote measurement of the physiology, behaviour and energetic status of free-living animals is made possible by a variety of techniques that we refer to collectively as 'biotelemetry'. This set ofExpand

Terrestrial animal tracking as an eye on life and planet
A brave new world with a wider view Researchers have long attempted to follow animals as they move through their environment. Until relatively recently, however, such efforts were limited to shortExpand

Conservation physiology.
Conservation biologists increasingly face the need to provide legislators, courts and conservation managers with data on causal mechanisms underlying conservation problems such as species decline. ToExpand

Using tri-axial acceleration data to identify behavioral modes of free-ranging animals: general concepts and tools illustrated for griffon vultures
Summary Integrating biomechanics, behavior and ecology requires a mechanistic understanding of the processes producing the movement of animals. This calls for contemporaneous biomechanical,Expand

Plasma levels of corticosterone are often used as a measure of “stress” in wild animal populations. However, we lack conclusive evidence that different stress levels reflect different survivalExpand

A dynamic Brownian bridge movement model to estimate utilization distributions for heterogeneous animal movement.
1. The recently developed Brownian bridge movement model (BBMM) has advantages over traditional methods because it quantifies the utilization distribution of an animal based on its movement pathExpand

Technology on the Move: Recent and Forthcoming Innovations for Tracking Migratory Birds
Basic questions about the life histories of migratory birds have confounded scientists for generations, yet we are nearing an era of historic discovery as new tracking technologies make it possibleExpand

The genomic landscape underlying phenotypic integrity in the face of gene flow in crows
Crows of a feather flock together Closely related species with overlapping ranges typically evolve genetic barriers to prevent crossbreeding. Poelstra et al. sequenced genes from two species ofExpand
