A big storm in a small body: seasonal changes in body mass, hormone concentrations and leukocyte profile in the little auk (Alle alle)
TLDR
No sex differences in any of the variables investigated indicates that male and female parental investments are very similar in little auks, small Arctic seabirds.
Prolactin mediates behavioural rejection responses to avian brood parasitism
TLDR
To the knowledge, this is the first experimental evidence that host responses to brood parasitism are mediated by the primary endocrine pathway that orchestrates the expression of avian parental care.
Early warnings of environmental change on ecosystems: hormonally-mediated life-history decisions in seabirds
TLDR
This thesis aimed to assess what the breeding success of a top marine predator indicates about changes in the marine ecosystem and what mechanisms control changes in breeding success, using the black-legged kittiwake Rissa tridactyla as the model species.
Eye Region Surface Temperature and Corticosterone Response to Acute Stress in a High-Arctic Seabird, the Little Auk
TLDR
Investigation of the relationship between the eye-region temperature (TEYE), the corticosterone level in blood (CORT; stress indicator in birds), and some covariates in a High-Arctic seabird, the Little Auk Alle alle indicates that infrared thermography is a useful, non-invasive measure of hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis reactivity under acute activation.
Assortative mating patterns of multiple phenotypic traits in a long‐lived seabird
TLDR
The degree of assortative mating in the Little Auk Alle alle, a long‐lived seabird with long‐term pair bonds and bi‐parental care for fixed (morphological) and labile (physiological, behavioural) traits, is investigated.
The Little Auk Alle alle: an ecological indicator of a changing Arctic and a model organism
The Little Auk Alle alle is a small planktivorous auk breeding colonially in the High Arctic. Owing to its large population size and bi-environmental lifestyle, resulting in the large-scale transport
Variations in the Breeding Biology of the Grey-Faced Petrel Pterodroma macroptera gouldi
TLDR
This dissertation aims to provide a history of the Procellariiformes and its relatives, focusing on the procellariidae, Pterodroma and Grey-Faced Petrel, which have been poorly studied in recent years.

Reproduction and modulation of the stress response: an experimental test in the house sparrow
TLDR
The hypothesis that individuals flexibly modulate their stress response with respect to the reproductive value of their brood in free-living house sparrows is tested and it is found that parents tending enlarged clutches responded less strongly to a stressor than those tending reduced clutches.
Experimental mate-removal increases the stress response of female house sparrows: The effects of offspring value?
What Factors Drive Prolactin and Corticosterone Responses to Stress in a Long‐Lived Bird Species (Snow Petrel Pagodroma nivea)?
TLDR
The hypothesis that individuals should modulate their prolactin stress response according to the fitness value of the current reproductive effort relative to the Fitness value of future reproduction is tested and is suggested to be relevant to parental investment in vertebrates.
Ecological factors underlying the adrenocortical response to capture stress in arctic-breeding shorebirds.
TLDR
Evidence is provided of a mechanism that birds may use to breed in environments with a brief breeding season and under conditions that might be perceived as stressful, if not for their reduced sensitivity to potential stressors.
When and Why Does My Mother Leave Me? the Question of Brood Desertion in the Dovekie (Alle Alle)
TLDR
It is found that females fed the chicks less than males but provisioned the chick until very late in the chick-rearing period, and brood desertion in the Dovekie seems to be flexible and to depend on environmental conditions.
Age-specific reproductive success in a long-lived bird: do older parents resist stress better?
TLDR
The ability to maintain a threshold level of prolactin during a stressful situation may be an important physiological mechanism involved in the improvement of reproductive performance with advancing age in long-lived birds.
MODULATING THE CORTICOSTERONE STRESS RESPONSE: A MECHANISM FOR BALANCING INDIVIDUAL RISK AND REPRODUCTIVE SUCCESS IN ARCTIC-BREEDING SPARROWS?
TLDR
The hypothesis that individuals with limited opportunities to breed can modulate the adrenocortical stress response when reproductive effort or investment is greatest as a way to maximize breeding success is supported.
