  • Growth rate and energetics of avian chicks are expected to be adapted to mode of development, breeding habitat and geographic location of breeding. Waders and gulls are excellent organisms on which to test these hypotheses since they have wide breeding distributions from the Arctic to Antarctica, and exhibit considerable variation in breeding ecology. I use growth rate coefficients to analyse the growth of wader (Charadrii) and gull (Lari) chicks from my own fieldwork and published data (142… CONTINUE READING
