A Phylogenomic Study of Birds Reveals Their Evolutionary History
Deep avian evolutionary relationships have been difficult to resolve as a result of a putative explosive radiation. Our study examined ∼32 kilobases of aligned nuclear DNA sequences from 19Expand

Post‐fledging survival in passerine birds and the value of post‐fledging studies to conservation
Conservation efforts are most effective when we have complete demographic information for a species of concern. Nevertheless, fundamental gaps in our knowledge of demography still exist for manyExpand

Landscape forest cover and edge effects on songbird nest predation vary by nest predator
Rates of nest predation for birds vary between and within species across multiple spatial scales, but we have a poor understanding of which predators drive such patterns. We video-monitored nests andExpand

Development of camera technology for monitoring nests
Photo and video technology has become increasingly useful in the study of avian nesting ecology. However, researchers interested in using camera systems are often faced with insufficient informationExpand

Species and Temporal Factors Affect Predator-Specific Rates of Nest Predation for Forest Songbirds in the Midwest
ABSTRACT. Knowledge of the relative contributions of predator species to overall rates of nest predation can improve our understanding of why predation risk varies, but the identity of predators isExpand

Long-term decline of a winter-resident bird community in Puerto Rico
Despite concern expressed two decades ago, there has been little recent discussion about continuing declines of migrant bird populations. Monitoring efforts have been focused almost exclusively onExpand

PHYLOGENETIC POSITION OF THE NEW WORLD QUAIL (ODONTOPHORIDAE): EIGHT NUCLEAR LOCI AND THREE MITOCHONDRIAL REGIONS CONTRADICT MORPHOLOGY AND THE SIBLEY-AHLQUIST TAPESTRY
Abstract The evolutionary relationship between the New World quail (Odontophoridae) and other groups of Galliformes has been an area of debate. In particular, the relationship between the New WorldExpand

A model for growth in the musk turtle, Sternotherus minor, in a north Florida spring
Mark-release-recapture measurements were obtained for 120 growth intervals (56 females, 64 males) in a spring-dwelling population of Sternotherus minor in northwestern Florida. Calculation ofExpand

Causalgia and transthoracic sympathectomy.
Abstract Casualties from the Republic of Vietnam conflict have again, as after every war, drawn our attention sharply to the problem of post-traumatic causalgia. Twenty-three cases of causalgia ofExpand

The Effects of Temperature on Nest Predation by Mammals, Birds, and Snakes
Abstract. Understanding how weather influences survival and reproduction is an important component of forecasting how climate change will influence wildlife population viability. Nest predation isExpand
