Orientation, Migration Routes and Flight Behaviour of Knots, Turnstones and Brant Geese Departing from Iceland in Spring
Flight behaviour and orientation of 303 flocks (31,200 individuals) of migrating Knots and Turnstones and 77 flocks (3200 individuals) of Brant Geese departing from Iceland towards Nearctic breeding
The adaptive significance of parental role division and sexual size dimorphism in breeding shorebirds
TLDR
Sexual size dimorphism among 57 species in the shorebird family Scolopacidae is evaluated in relation to parental role division during breeding in order to attain high parental efficiency for energetic reasons, because smaller individuals need less energy to maintain themselves.
Genetic and morphological variation in Dunlin Calidris alpina breeding in the Palearctic tundra
TLDR
Investigating the occurrence of different mtDNA haplotypes in Dunlin from eight breeding areas on the Russian and Siberian tundra indicates that mitochondrial DNA analysis improves models estimating the breeding origin of migrating Dunlin.
TRACKING PAST AND ONGOING LEMMING CYCLES ON THE EURASIAN TUNDRA
Several different aspects of the geographical ecology of tundra birds were investigated during theSwedish-Russian Tundra Ecology -94 expedition along the Northeast Passage in 1994. Quantitative cen
Migration and Wintering of Baltic Dunlins Calidris Alpina Schinzii with Known Breeding Origin
The population of Baltic Dunlins Calidris alpina schinzii is very small and is declining rapidly. To optimize conservation efforts, knowledge about the location of staging and wintering sites is
Parental cooperation in a changing climate: fluctuating environments predict shifts in care division
TLDR
The degree of flexibility in parental cooperation is likely to mediate the impacts of climate change on the demography and reproductive behaviour of wild animal populations, probably reflecting phenotypic plasticity of behaviour.
Geographical variation in the timing of breeding and moult in dunlin Calidris alpina on the Palearctic tundra
TLDR
The geographical variation in timing of breeding and moult of an Arctic breeding wader, the dunlin (Calidris alpina), is reported on.
