Geographic variation in bar-headed geese Anser Indicus : connectivity of wintering areas and breeding grounds across a broad front
The connectivity and frequency of exchange between sub-populations of migratory birds is integral to understanding population dynamics over the entire species’ range. True geese are highly
Breeding ecology of Kentish Plover Charadrius alexandrinus in an extremely hot environment
The results are consistent with the argument that a harsh environment can select for biparental care, and further studies are warranted to distinguish between alternative hypotheses for the different distribution of social behaviours of breeding populations.
Flocking and habitat use pattern of the Red Junglefowl Gallus gallus in Dudwa National Park, India
The habitat use and flock composition of the Red Junglefowl Gallus gallus in Dudwa National Park, India was studied between 1991 and 1994. Six habitats were monitored during winter and summer
The influence of a hot environment on parental cooperation of a ground-nesting shorebird, the Kentish plover Charadrius alexandrinus
The results suggest biparental care is essential during incubation in the Kentish plover in extremely hot environments and that once the eggs have hatched the risks associated with hot temperature are reduced: the chicks become mobile, and they gradually develop thermoregulation.
Synthesis of a unique isoindoline/tetrahydroisoquinoline-based tricyclic sultam library utilizing a Heck-aza-Michael strategy.
A 160-member library of tricyclic sultams, together with their isoindolines/THIQ and secondary sulfonamides precursors, were constructed using this strategy.
Resource Partitioning in Three Sympatric Species of Storks in Keoladeo National Park, India
All stork species showed preferences for foraging habitat that differed with respect to water level, vegetation community structure and the presence of prey species, and the fishing depth component of resource segregation has played a major role in determining feeding success and reducing niche overlap.
First description of autumn migration of Sooty Falcon Falco concolor from the United Arab Emirates to Madagascar using satellite telemetry
Summary The movement and migration pattern of the ‘Near Threatened’ Sooty Falcon Falco concolor is poorly known. Sooty Falcons breed on the islands of the Arabian Gulf after arriving from their
Greater Flamingo (Phoenicopterus roseus): Important wintering sites and breeding records in the United Arab Emirates
Greater Flamingo (Phoenicopterus roseus) monitoring was undertaken in the United Arab Emirates from 2003 to 2015 at 36 permanent sites to find key wintering and breeding sites. Bul Syayeef Marine
