Ecophysiological studies of Australian native birds are relatively rare and have tended to focus on adaptations of birds to extreme environments. Much of this research over the last century has followed ornithological trends originating overseas, with the Australian avifauna being examined in the context of adaptations identified in Northern Hemisphere birds. This approach is clearly seen by the earlier research examining arid adaptations in Australian birds. These studies have largely… CONTINUE READING
