Nesting biology and mating system in an alpine population of Temminck's Stint Calidris temminckii
It is suggested that male availability is relatively unimportant compared with other factors governing female movements between layings of successive clutches; females may increase their reproductive success, either by achieving a longer egg-laying season or by moving from nesting habitats/areas available early in the season to those available later.

On the cost of searching for a mate in female pied flycatchers Ficedula hypoleuca
The length of the premating period was negatively correlated with female body weight and prevailing air temperature, indicating that the females were subject to an energy constraint when searching, and competition for a mate, rather than for food, may explain the spacing of males. Expand
Structure and dynamics of a high mountain wetland bird community in southern Norway: An 18-year study of waders and gulls
The variations in density of the wader community was correlated positively with the mean temperature in June, and negatively with the NAO index for June, the date of snow-melt and the percentage of snow cover in the area, showing that an early snow-Melt was important for the establishing of territories.

Low Frequencies of Supernormal Clutches in the Southern Dunlin and the Temminck's Stint
It is argued that intraspecific nest parasitism is unlikely to be a primary reproductive tactic in small sandpipers because of the low frequency of supernormal clutches found in the polygamous Temminck's Stint and the monogamous Southern Dunlin. Expand
Occurrence and habitat choice of waders in a high mountain sedimentation flat on Hardangervidda, South Norway
Studies of the occurrence and nesting habitat choice of waders were conducted at Finsefetene (1200 m a.s.l.), a high mountain sedimentation flat on the Hardangervidda plateau, South Norway duringExpand
