High-utility conserved avian microsatellite markers enable parentage and population studies across a wide range of species
BackgroundMicrosatellites are widely used for many genetic studies. In contrast to single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and genotyping-by-sequencing methods, they are readily typed in samples of lowExpand

Flexibility but no coordination of visits in provisioning riflemen
Parental care strategies occupy a continuum from fixed investments that are consistent across contexts to flexible behaviour that largely depends on external social and environmental cues.Expand

Testing the predictions of sex allocation hypotheses in dimorphic, cooperatively breeding riflemen
Abstract Evolutionary theory predicts that parents should invest equally in the two sexes. If one sex is more costly, a production bias is predicted in favour of the other. Two well‐studied causes ofExpand
