Climate change and breeding success: decline of the capercaillie in Scotland
Summary 1. The number of capercaillie in Scotland has fallen since the 1970s. Previous work showed that low breeding success, exacerbated by deaths of fully grown birds flying into forest fences, wasExpand

Effects of testosterone on breeding density, breeding success and survival of red grouse
Territorial intolerance can limit bird numbers by preventing subordinates from holding territories and breeding. We report the first controlled and replicated experiment in a natural population ofExpand

Capercaillie breeding success in relation to forest habitat and predator abundance
Summary 1 The capercaillie Tetrao urogallus is widely valued as a game bird and an indicator of forest ecosystem quality. In Scotland, its numbers have declined since the 1970s, due primarily toExpand

Capercaillie Tetrao urogallus in Scotland - demography of a declining population
Capercaillie Tetrao urogallus numbers declined in Scottish forests between 1992 and 1997, although the rate (mean 16% per year, 95% CL 1-30%) differed among forests. Hens declined more quickly thanExpand

Population cycles in birds of the grouse family (Tetraonidae)
Publisher Summary The regular population cycles of boreal herbivores such as voles, hares and birds of the grouse family (Tetraonidae) were an early source of wonder in ecology. All tetraonid speciesExpand

Experimental Prevention of a Population Cycle in Red Grouse
Red Grouse (Lagopus lagopus scoticus) show unstable population dynamics. The number shot for sport at Rickarton moor in northeast Scotland, for example, has cycled with 10-11-yr periodicity sinceExpand

Spatial arrangement of kin affects recruitment success in young male red grouse
Models have shown that population cycles might be driven by time lags resulting from positive feedback between kin structure and population change, coupled with negative feedback between density andExpand

Experimentally increased aggressiveness reduces population kin structure and subsequent recruitment in red grouse Lagopus lagopus scoticus
Summary 1. According to the ‘territorial behaviour’ hypothesis, red grouse population cycles are caused by delayed density-dependent changes in male aggressiveness influencing recruitment. TheseExpand
